The new legislation contained in the Health and Safety Reform Bill uses language which focuses on the concept of risk, whereas the current HSE Act talks almost exclusively about hazards.

The word 'risk' appears 134 times in the new Bill but only four times in the HSE Act.

This is quite a conceptual shift in thinking.

What is your view on this? Have your say in Safeguard's brief survey. The anonymised results will appear in the next edition of Safeguard magazine.
