The Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) has commissioned a new two-year study, which aims to explore if less regulation regarding health and safety will benefit employers.

IOSH is to work alongside specialists at the University of Nottingham to determine if decreasing laws would help firms to reap benefits, without having to put their workers in danger.

The study will be entitled "Health and safety in a changing world" and could highlight the importance of warning signs for firms.

Research programme director Professor Robert Dingwall said: "The project supports IOSH's mission to champion a realistic approach to risk management, supporting employees and employers in minimizing the social and economic costs of death and injury at work."

IOSH recently stressed the importance of safety at sports and music events, urging that tighter crowd controls are necessary for audiences to remain safe.

Formal safety training and the retention of all-seater stadiums are two of the measures that the group has encouraged.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801306938-ADNFCR
