IOSH welcomes govt health and safety backing

The damaging misinterpretations of laws relating to safety signage have been highlighted by employment minister Chris Grayling and the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH).

Mr Grayling defended Britain's health and safety legislation, while criticising people who attempt to hide unfavourable decisions behind it.

His move was welcomed by IOSH, which has spearheaded a concentrated campaign throughout the health and safety profession in order to expose how laws are misinterpreted and mis-applied.

IOSH head of policy and public affairs Richard Jones said: "We're delighted that the government has listened and is joining our fight to tackle the health and safety myths that have sadly tarnished real health and safety."

His remarks come after XpertHR warned businesses not to ignore the health and safety of their home workers.

The company emphasised that people who operate from their own home command the same due diligence as those who work within their employer's premises. ADNFCR-2754-ID-800711591-ADNFCR
