Review of European Directives on Personal Protective Equipment and Workplace Safety

The British Health and Safety Executive (HSE) is seeking employers' and
workers' views on the European Commission (EC) directives on workplace health,
safety and welfare and on personal protective equipment.

The review will
evaluate the Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992 and the
Personal Protective Equipment at Work Regulations 1992 to ensure that the
regulations are cost effective, meet the needs of business whilst ensuring they
protect the health and safety of employees.

As part of this evaluation HSE is
asking employers and safety representatives for their views on a questionnaire
which can be downloaded from the HSE website at www.hse.gov.uk/spd/pdf/question.pdf.
