The HSE is inviting views on its approach to the regulation of higher hazard
industries. A discussion document Regulating Higher Hazards – Exploring the
Issues aims to help increase public understanding of its legal requirements in
the offshore, railway, chemicals and nuclear industries.
David Eves, HSE deputy director general, said, "We are not suggesting a
uniform legal framework would be appropriate, but we want to know what people
think of our approach. When we have their views, we’ll look again at the
principles and see if we need to rethink aspects of them.’
The consultation period ends 28 January 2001.
