General Health & Safety Information - On Approval

There has been a large increase in the total amount of fines due to stricter enforcement.  The average penalty has risen to £128,000 per conviction.  On  13 July 2017 the 62 pages of the GREAT REPEAL BILL (EU (Withdrawal) Bill) were published and presented to Parliament.  Depending upon the outcome of the final negotiations, it is estimated that some 1,000 new Statutory Instruments will be required to deliver Brexit. Some 12,000 EU legislative acts must be copied and, where appropriate, amended.  A new Section on BREXIT explores the implications for UK health and safety at work law.  BREXIT is also considered elsewhere at the relevant points in the text. The text considers the Health and Safety Executive's 3 Health Priority Plans and 19 Sector Plans and its Business Plan 2017/18.  A review and simplification of Chemicals Regulations is under way (COSHH, Lead and DSEAR).   All of this necessitates a new approach - and a new Handbook - “Health & Safety at Work Brief”. The Handbook is written by a Solicitor with extensive experience of health and safety law in a major British plc. In its largest Edition ever, the text comprises some 1100 A5 pages in two loose-leaf Volumes and is contained in two smart, foam-padded leather-look Binders. Designed as either a stand-alone text or a companion volume to "Environment Brief", "Health & Safety at Work Brief" features both cross-referencing within its text and to the text of "Environment Brief". Volume 1 is an independent commentary of some 550 pages explaining the law, practice and policy. “Health & Safety at Work Brief” constitutes one stop treatment of health and safety subject-matters. It provides a thoroughly integrated treatment of the following features of health and safety: a user-friendly layout by subject-matter and by numbered paragraphs; reference to current legislation; explanation of the law from reproduction of the key points in Approved Codes of Practice or Guidance Notes and from some 200 cases of leading case-law; reference to EU and other applicable legislation; and further reading from HSE publications and several hundred websites. Volume 2 comprises some 530 pages reproducing verbatim the consolidated legislative texts of Key Acts and Regulations.
