moves to enable the NHS to recover the costs of workplace accidents could leave
employers with a £150m bill, the Engineering Employers’ Federation (EEF) has
body is urging ministers to remove proposals from the Health and Social Care
Bill which would add the cost to the employers’ liability insurance system.
EEF said the changes would lead to soaring premiums on the compulsory insurance
scheme which, in turn would cost manufacturers more.
Department of Heath hopes the changes will ensure employers that are liable for
accidents cover related NHS costs.
