IIRSM and CQI Breakfast Briefing
On the 24th January 2012 IIRSM, in partnership with CQI, ran a Breakfast Meeting with guest speaker and panel member Professor Ragnar Löfstedt. This was one of his very first engagements following the Löfstedt review - an independent review of health and safety legislation commissioned by the DWP.
Follow some of what happened at the event by watching the below 3 videos:
Professor Ragnar Löfstedt: "A number of politicians.. as well as a number of stakeholders did not think I was radical enough with my recommendations; they wanted to cut back more regulations, they wanted to make some major changes to HSE"
Professor Ragnar Löfstedt "Do people actually understand? I've gone through a number of these ACOPs... and I find the language overly legalistic and overly bureacratic; and frankly I don't understand it. And I'm a professor, I should understand it!"
The panel discuss the issue of guidance and changing behaviour in an organisation's health and safety policy.
