Not all of the “new” safety legislation is “new”!

The introduction of the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act, 2005 paved the way for the updating of existing legislation in line with modern risk management principles. For example the introduction of the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work (General Application) Regulations, 2007-2012 allowed for this hazardous work to be better controlled on a risk assessed basis and a more concentrated examination of the provision of suitable equipment. In a similar manner, while the 2013 Construction Regulations do contain new duties, in the main it is updating existing duties and therefore it should not take organisations long to ensure compliance with the new provisions.

The Health & Safety Authority have published guidance for the management of health and safety in procurement and design process. We would recommend that you log on to the HSA web page and search for guidance documents relating to the construction sector.

Alternatively Assure Health & Safety Consultants can help you develop your policies and procedures in line with legislative requirements.
