Plans to simplify regulations for reporting injuries, diseases and hazardous incidents must not be used as a means to reduce vital reporting.

This is according to Prospect, which has admitted that it is alarmed by signals sent out by a Health and Safety Executive (HSE) consultancy that is urging the removal of employers' obligation to report health absences.

Health and safety officer Sarah Page said: "These proposals would remove reporting requirements for many serious hazardous incidents and jeopardise opportunities for justice expected by the public from its health and safety regulator."

Ms Page explained that the plans would also indicate to employers that the occupational health of their workforce is "no longer important".

Recently, the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) claimed that construction supply chains can improve health and safety management in businesses.

The organisation is worried about the wellbeing of staff in projects where the reputation of companies are not in danger.
