Ready for the new explosive and acetylene laws?

New laws designed to reduce the regulatory burden on those who work with explosives and compressed acetylene gas are set to take effect next month.

The Explosives Regulations 2014 and The Acetylene Safety, England and Wales and Scotland, Regulations 2014 will replace the Approved Code of Practice for the Manufacture and Storage of Explosives Regulations 2005.

The revisions, which also overwrite a number of legislative instruments and the current explosives guidance, follow recommendations by Professor Ragnar Löfstedt in his report ‘Reclaiming Health and Safety For All’.
