Revised health and safety legislation takes effect

Yes I am indebted to the Health and Safety Executive for reminding me of the following changes that came into force on 1st October.

Two revised health and safety regulations came into force on 1st October 2013. The Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 have been amended to remove the requirement for workplace first aid training providers to be approved by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). In addition, changes to the Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations (RIDDOR) 1995, require fewer types of ‘dangerous occurrence’ to be reported and the list of 47 types of industrial disease has been replaced with eight categories of reportable work-related illness. The changes are based on recommendations made in the Löfstedt review of health and safety published in 2011.
