Gordon Dalyell writes to mark International Workers Memorial Day
Today (Tuesday 28th April) is International Workers Memorial Day.
Digby Brown Partner Gordon Dalyell considers the importance of the day, the very real consequences of changes to workplace health and safety regulation over the last few years and identifies what Government needs to do to make sure everyone has the protection they deserve at work:
• Section 69 of the Enterprise Act needs to be repealed.
• The RIDDOR reporting requirement should be restored to three day or longer absences.
• More resource to the HSE for inspection and enforcement.
• More resource to the Crown to quicken and enhance prosecution.
