Libben Comment on Health and Safety Post-Brexit

The UK health and safety system must remain, post-Brexit, the head of policy and public affairs at IOSH has said.

Richard Jones said: “Post-Brexit, the UK now has less influence over EU law. Now we’re exiting, it’s vital the UK continues to apply our successful risk-based health and safety system, 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.”
