HSE Marking 40th Anniversary of Key Law

"Arguably it is one of the best pieces of legislation on the statute books, although we know it is often misunderstood and misinterpreted. It has protected millions of British workers and driven sharp reductions in incidents of occupational death, serious injury, and ill health," HSE Chair Judith Hackitt said.

Britain's Health & Safety Agency is celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Health and Safety at Work Act this summer, three years after OSHA and the Department of Labor marked the 40th anniversary of the signing of the OSH Act by President Richard Nixon. The law created OSHA, NIOSH, and the Occupational Safety and Health Review Commission.

HSE Chair Judith Hackitt's post earlier this year said, "This year will mark 40 years since Health and Safety at Work Act received Royal Assent. Arguably it is one of the best pieces of legislation on the statute books, although we know it is often misunderstood and misinterpreted. It has protected millions of British workers and driven sharp reductions in incidents of occupational death, serious injury and ill health."
