Changes to Workplace Health, Safety and Welfare ACOP

Changes to Workplace Health, Safety and Welfare ACOP

Following an initial consultation in June 2012, it was agreed by the HSE board that a number of Approved Code of Practices (ACOPs) would be revised in line with the recommendation by Professor Ragnar Löfstedt in his report ‘Reclaiming health and safety for all’. 

A revised version of the Workplace Health, Safety and Welfare ACOP (L24) is now available for consultation. Changes include:

  • Simplifying the language to clarify what duty holders must do to comply with the Workplace Regulations
  • Updating the publication to include the provisions of the Miscellaneous Amendment Regulations 2002
  • Improving guidance and reference to the most up-to-date and relevant standards of advice
  • Removing out-of-date duties and requirements that are superseded by new regulations

The consultation period runs to 30th July 2013.

The consultative document and a draft version of the revised ACOP are available on the HSE website.
