Presentation Transcript

In his report ‘Reclaiming health and safety for all’ Professor Lofstedt reported that overall a wide range of stakeholders supported the principles of ACoPs and saw them as a vital part of the system, forming a key link between goal setting legislation and guidance.

He also said they could be simplified to make it easier for employers to understand and meet the legal obligations and so reduce the risks of over-compliance

The Professor recommended that HSE should review all its ACoPs to address a range of issues highlighted in his review

  • Does it provide a clear and understandable guide to what the law requires?
  • Is it suitable for the audience for which it is written?
  • Should the guidance material be included?
tell us what you think2
Tell us what you think
  • Could the ACoP be merged with other ACoPs or guidance?
  • Are both guidance and ACoP necessary in the same document?
  • Could it be presented differently e.g. other media channels?
  • Could the material be ‘future proofed’ so updates could be managed better without the need for consultation on revisions

Tell us what you think
