Blue Tape

The HSE describes blue tape as rules imposed business to business and not due to legislation, such as SSIP schemes etc.  The HSE has found that many of these additional rules are completely pointless leading to excessive record keeping and not adding to safety.  The HSE thinks that blue tape is giving health and safety a bad name

Be careful, the HSE is saying the above but we feel at GD that it is being disingenuous, as in reality if you get a visit from one of its inspectors they will go through your procedures with a fine toothcomb to try and pick your procedures up on something to justify an FFI charge.  So its like walking on a tightrope trying to do enough but not too much


As ever if in doubt give us a shout.  Have a safe September.  Ian and the team
