Notice of a public consultation has been received from Safety Groups UK as follows:

Subject: Review of the implementation of the National Local Authority Enforcement Code for Health and Safety at Work – One year on - Seeking your views.

Good morning,

This email is to alert you to a public consultation seeking to review the implementation of the National Local Authority Enforcement Code for Health and Safety at Work (the Code). We are seeking views from local authorities, businesses, as well as bodies representing these groups, including organisations that represent employers or employees (e.g. Trade Associations, Trade Unions etc.) to test perceptions and identify ways to improve implementation.

If you (or you members) have an interest in local authority health and safety regulation and the businesses they regulate we’d particularly like to hear your views on how successful the code has been on achieving its aims. Please would you take a few minutes to complete the short questionnaire which is accessible using this link: http://webcommunities.hse.gov.uk/connect.ti/laenforcementcode/ . Please cascade this email freely and encourage completion of the questionnaire, it will take approximately 10 minutes to complete.

The consultation will run for 8 weeks, closing 3 October 2014.

The Code, launched in May 2013, was developed in response to the recommendation made by Professor Löfstedt in his report “Reclaiming health & safety for all: an independent review of health & safety legislation” and the results of the Red Tape Challenge. Providing a framework for risk based approach to targeting health & safety regulatory interventions, the Code was designed to ensure a consistent and proportionate approach to enforcement by LA Health & Safety regulators.

Many thanks
