Govt report deemed a missed chance to change safety regulations

Professor Ragnar Lofstedt's recent report is a missed opportunity to voice concerns about the government's health and safety plans.

This is according to the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health's head of policy and public affairs Richard Jones, who is disappointed that the publication did not voice concerns about the speed and scale of review implementation.

"IOSH believes a number of the Löfstedt recommendations to be conceptually flawed – i.e. we believe that where there are misperceptions, it is these that need to change and not the law," Mr Jones explained.

He went on to say that evidence for certain proposed changes are "weak" and supported by poor impact assessments.

While IOSH has expressed dissatisfaction with this report, it recently backed the Health and Safety Authority's new Strategy Statement 2013-2015.

It believes the approach will help to decrease the number of deaths in Ireland's workplaces.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801534811-ADNFCR
