CD253 – A consultation on the revised Approved Code of Practice (ACOP) L24 - "Workplace health, safety and welfare"

This consultative document invites views on the revised Approved Code of Practice (ACOP) L24 - "Workplace health, safety and welfare".  L24 is relevant to a wide range of people, employers, building owners, managers and worker representatives. The ACOP has been revised in response to Professor Löfstedt's independent review of health and safety legislation Reclaiming health and safety for all. The consultation aims to establish if the changes make it easier for employers to understand and meet their legal obligations.

Changes include:
  • Removing out-of-date duties and requirements that are superseded by new regulations.
  • Simplifying the language to clarify what dutyholders must do to comply with the Workplace Regulations.
  • Updating the publication to include the provisions of the Miscellaneous Amendment Regs 2002.
  • Improving guidance, referring to the most up-to-date and relevant advice.
