Over £1 million of health and safety publications and guidance will soon be free to access on the Health and Safety Executive’s website.

On the launch its new five-year strategy for safety in Great Britain, the HSE said it would make all its documents – including codes of practice – freely available in a bid to help SMEs improve safety standards in their businesses.

The documents, which are usually purchased by small and medium-sized firms, are currently only available in paid-for hardcopies.

HSE chairperson Judith Hackitt stated it may take a few months to get all the information uploaded to the regulator’s website, but she hoped it would go some way to addressing the problems the HSE has in reaching small business.

The safety body is also asking organisations to sign up to its new strategy, which has already been signed by firms including Corus, BAA and BT.
