H&S consequences of Brexit
At the end of March 2019 the UK will leave the European Union. That’s as certain as anything can be in these uncertain times. But when it comes to the effect of Brexit on health and safety, what else do we know for sure?
One thing many experts are forecasting is that, for a number of practical reasons, very little will change in the immediate aftermath of Brexit.
The longer term is difficult to predict of course. There are calls for deregulation from some quarters, yet many signs are pointing in the opposite direction: indicating an increasingly important role for health
and safety once the UK has left the EU.
