HSE wants public feedback on acetylene laws

6th August 2013 | Health and Safety Signs

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) is looking for public feedback on the safety legislation for acetylene.

These laws cover the safety of workers and the public during the production, storage and use of acetylene, with the HSE seeking views from businesses and stakeholders across an eight-week public consultation.

People interested in the changes may include industry, government departments, third sector groups and people involved in activities such as welding.

Peter Brown, head of major hazard policy, said: “The draft regulations aim to draw together all the pieces of legislation that are specific to the production, storage and use of acetylene. 

“One single set of regulations should make it clearer and easier for businesses to identify what they need to do to protect themselves and their workers from the dangers of acetylene.”

By introducing a single set of regulations, the HSE is aiming to remove duplicate provisions in existing legislation to minimise potential confusion.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801621458-ADNFCR
