What No Safety - Health and Safety Specialists in Salisbury, Wiltshire

BREXIT and impact on health and safety

The head of Policy and Public Affairs at the Institute of Occupational Health and Safety (IOSH) Richard Jones said: Post Brexit, the UK now has less influence over EU law, now we are exiting.  However, it is vital the UK continues to apply our successful risk based health and safety systems, which includes laws from EU directives because it’s been found to be fit for purpose by several independent reviews and is respected and imitated across the world.

IOSH will continue to promote agreed international standards and to defend against any erosion of health and safety protections. As UK organisations will want to continue to trade with Europe, it will be in everyone’s interest to maintain the status quo. The UK has already helped to influence sound foundations for European health and safety and beyond and our expertise will continue to be sought and valued.
