Government calls for help with health and safety review

In June 2011, the Government launched a health and safety “red tape challenge” to encourage people who had “fallen foul of barmy bureaucratic decisions for ‘health and safety reasons'” to get involved in a government-wide review of regulations.

Chris Grayling, employment minister, said that the Government would act on public views about which laws needed to be scrapped and called for the public, businesses and voluntary sector to “help restore common sense” around health and safety.

The initiative, which ended in July, was designed to feed into the Löfstedt review of health and safety Regulations, which is due to publish its findings in the autumn.

It was part of the Government’s wider red tape challenge initiative, which was launched in April, to curb bureaucracy.
