    Two thirds of health and safety laws came from Europe

    By Jonathan Brown on May 13, 2016

    Two thirds of health and safety laws came from Europe

    A new study has revealed that almost two-thirds of British health and safety regulations introduced between 1997 and 2009 originated from Europe, helping to reduce workplace fatalities.

    Because of this, millions of workers will face a greater risk of accidents or injuries if the UK leaves the European Union, the TUC warns.

    European legislation has helped workers

    Legislation from Europe has helped stop illnesses and injuries in the workplace and has saved lives, according to the union organisation.

    Construction workers and police officers are among those to benefit, while protections against asbestos have also been strengthened.

    If the UK votes to leave the EU, the Government would be able to decide whether to keep protections derived from EU laws, according to the report.

    Government to ‘water down’ rules

    TUC general secretary Frances O’Grady said that it’s clear voting to leave the EU is a big risk for people’s safety at work.

    Brexit could see many of the vital protections that keep workers safe in shops, factories, offices or on building sites stripped away, he claims, leaving millions of people at increased risk of accident or injury in the workplace.

    He suggests the Government is ready to water down key health and safety rules should Britain vote Leave in June.
