The Chartered Institution of Wastes Management (CIWM) has defended health and safety regulations in the UK.

Steve Lee, chief executive of CIWM, stated that professionals in the waste and resources industry have worked tirelessly to integrate an effective health and safety culture which, for many firms, will include the installation of safety signs.

Mr Lee's comments were made in a reaction to prime minister David Cameron's recent speech, which stressed the need to reduce the health and safety burden placed on businesses.

In response to Mr Cameron's remarks, Mr Lee said: "Whoever penned the prime minister's resolution to "kill off the health and safety culture for good" has a very poor grasp of the important role that this legislation plays in protecting us all against work-related death, injury or illness."

As part of his original speech, David Cameron expressed his hope to free small and medium businesses from health and safety red tape, while also tackling the compensation culture, alleviating fears that firms will be sued for trivial claims.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801261064-ADNFCR
