“Active Safety Associates, Health & Safety Consultants, Surrey UK, have been Cadogan Building Services out-sourced health & safety consultants since the company was formed in 2006. They were recommended to me and I have always found Richard to be knowledgeable, courteous and always available to assist, even at short notice. The Health & Safety Management System he devised for the company is comprehensive and user-friendly and his on-going support invaluable. I would have no hesitation in recommending him to other prospective companies, no matter their size.”

New health and safety legislation in April, 2006

Businesses will need to keep an eye on forthcoming changes in health and safety legislation which will come into effect in April 2006 and October 2006.

The HSE has published details of legislation due to commence or change in April 2006. Changes include

  • The safety case regime with respect to offshore installations
  • The implementation of the Physical Agents (Noise) Directive 2003/10/EC which lowers exposure action values
  • Environmental impact assessments for the decommissioning of nuclear reactors
  • Update to health and safety fees which the HSE charges for safety case assessment, inspections and approvals in the “permissioning regimes”, and other work regarding statutory functions
  • Regulation 22 of the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999, to exclude the right of third parties to seek damages from employees in breach of their duties under these regulations
  • Replacement of existing regulations covering the safe transportation of petrol by road and rail.

Further details of the April 2006 changes and the regulations due to be revised at other times in the year are available here.
