Myth Busters Challenge Panel

HSE logo"Health and Safety" is often incorrectly used as a convenient excuse to stop what are essentially sensible activities going ahead. HSE has set up an independent panel – the Myth Busters Challenge Panel - to scrutinize such decisions.

This Panel will look into complaints regarding the advice given by non-regulators such as insurance companies, health and safety consultants and employers and quickly assess if a sensible and proportionate decision has been made.

The state: "We want to make clear that 'health and safety' is about managing real risks properly, not being risk averse and stopping people getting on with their lives."
