- CD267 – Consultation on the proposal for new Regulations on health and safety in mines
This consultation seeks views on proposals to introduce new Regulations covering health and safety in mines. These would replace all existing mines legislation and include specific duties on mine operators to manage major hazards inherent to mining. The Approved Codes of Practice supporting existing law would be replaced by a single new guidance document. This review is one of the Löfstedt sector specific consolidations.
Consultation began on 7 April and ends on 1 June 2014
- CD261 – Consultation on replacement of the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007
This consultation seeks views on HSE's proposal to replace the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007 (CDM 2007) and withdraw the Approved Code of Practice. In line with an evaluation of CDM 2007 and a recommendation in Professor Löfstedt's report Reclaiming health and safety for all: an independent review of health and safety legislation, the proposed revision is intended to aid clarity and reduce bureaucracy. The ACoP would be replaced with a suite of tailored guidance aimed at particular sectors, in particular smaller projects. Two thirds or more of fatal injuries in construction occur on small sites.
Consultation began on 31 March and ends on 6 June 2014
