The British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) has welcomed the government's move to reduce health and safety red tape.

Dr Adam Marshall, director of policy and external affairs at the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC), believes that the decision will act as good news for many businesses, helping to save both time and money.

The government plans will see shops, offices, pubs and clubs removed from the investigations, with over 3,000 regulations scrapped or altered in a bid to promote business growth.

He advised that the cost savings to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and local authorities should be reinvested in company support services.

"The extent to which businesses actually benefit will depend on whether the regulations affected are the most burdensome ones or just arcane rules that are no longer applied," Mr Marshall continued.

He underlined that the government's success will be measured by reductions in business costs.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801447392-ADNFCR
