health and safety

It's business as usual in the short-term according to the Health and Safety Executive.

A statement issued by the Health and Safety Executive confirms health and safety standards will be guaranteed for stakeholders immediately after Brexit. The longer-term forecast for the direction in which standards may go is less clear. If the Government decides to maintain strong free-trade ties with the EU, standards in the UK may reflect those in the EU. Alternatively, some believe the need to negotiate trade deals with non-EU countries may lead to deregulation.
