BREXIT & H&S – What you need to know

There is much speculation around how health and safety will change following our exit from the European Union.  However, in the short term, the changes are likely to be subtle and of little impact to your day to day management of health and safety.

It is important that businesses realise that exiting the EU is unlikely to reduce the existing standards set during our membership period, indeed, these standards are likely to be adopted as the UK benchmark.  Of course, there will undoubtedly  be revisions and revocations along the way, but only where risk controls are not diminished by their removal.

If you are unsure what to do with your health and safety management systems leading up to and in the aftermath of exit (will it be the 31st October?!) the HSE has an informative website for up to date information and guidance: BREXIT WEBSITE
