Plans announced to reduce number of health and safety inspections

A number of businesses will no longer face lengthy health and safety inspections as part of new plans from the government.

Shops, offices, pubs and clubs will be omitted from the investigations, while more than 3,000 regulations will be scrapped or altered in an effort by the coalition to reduce red tape and promote business growth.

The plans look set to be brought in from April 2013, with firms only facing inspections if they are operating in high-risk areas such as construction.

Business secretary Vince Cable said: "In these tough times, businesses need to focus all their energies on creating jobs and growth, not being tied up in unnecessary red tape. I've listened to those concerns and we're determined to put common sense back into areas like health and safety."

The move is expected to save British businesses millions of pounds in wasted time and money, while helping to facilitate economic growth.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801446458-ADNFCR
