Among a raft of recent regulations relating to health and safety, two are of general interest.

The Health and Safety in Employment Amend Regulations 2017 come into force on 15/05/2017. They revoke certain provisions of the Health and Safety in Employment Regulations 1995 that are redundant because their substance is provided for by regulations in the Health and Safety at Work (General Risk and Workplace Management) Regulations 2016.

The Health and Safety at Work (Asbestos) Amend Regulations 2017 come into force on 15/05/2017 and amend the Health and Safety at Work (Asbestos) Regulations 2016 by:

  • amending the definition of trace level to align it with current practice by deleting a reference to a period of time:
  • amending several provisions to refer to trace level rather than to 0.01 fibres/ml:
  • amending several provisions to ensure that all the provisions refer consistently to conditions relating to training, retraining, or reassessment:
  • making other technical or editorial corrections.
