Health and Safety Hope For Self-employed

Here’s some hopeful news for those of us who are self employed. The HSE is looking into reducing some of the H&S red tape following the Löfstedt Report published last year. A three-month consultation is looking to exempt self-employed people whose work poses no potential risk of harm to others from health and safety law.

A separate consultation on plans to simplify  RIDDOR has also been launched. Under these proposals, self-employed people will no longer be required to report their own injuries or illness.

This all looks like pretty sensible to me.  I’m only surprised it has taken HMG this long to work it out…
