Abstract

This report presents key findings of a research project on the changing landscape of OSH regulation in the UK. Understanding the changing landscape of OSH regulation and standards and its implications are of central importance for ensuring that OSH outcomes are not compromised and the needs of different types of organisations are met. This project examined the landscape of OSH in the UK since its origin and in particular looked at how regulation of OSH has evolved over time. It considered both policy and practice issues as well as the role of key stakeholders in this process with a view to identify how the right balance can be achieved to promote health and safety going forward. To achieve its aims, a qualitative methodology was implemented in five stages: a. a literature and policy review, including a comparative analysis with other countries; b. case study analysis; c. stakeholder interviews, d. stakeholder workshops including focus groups; and e. research output synthesis.
