REC Construction welcomes cuts to health and safety red tape

REC Construction welcomes cuts to health and safety red tape
 
Following proposals put forward by the Work and Pensions Minister Chris Grayling to reduce red tape and regulations around health and safety, the Recruitment and Employment Confederations (REC) construction group has welcomed the rationalisation of the regulations.
 
Simon Noakes, Chair of REC Construction said:
 
We all agree that the first imperative is the safety and well-being of our workforce. At the same time there is a need to ensure that in the current climate, businesses can operate without  having to shoulder excessive burdens posed by unnecessary red tape and regulations.
 
This move does not devalue health and safety.  It rather calls on all of us to work in partnership and start a debate on how to radically transform regulations in our country to serve the ultimate goal ensuring the best possible treatment of our workforce while allowing businesses to grow.
 
We believe that the Health and Safety Executive has a central role to play and our group is committed to continue working with the HSE. We believe that the focus should now be on high risk working sites and tackling rogue employers and our members are here to help through their unique on-the-ground experience.
