Title The proposed removal of outdated textile and anthrax prevention health and safety legislation
Bibliographic information HSE Books, P.O. Box 1999, Sudbury, Suffolk CO10 6FS, United Kingdom, 1996. 38p.
Abstract This consultation document invites views on the repeal/revocation of certain textile and anthrax prevention provisions identified during the Health and Safety Commission's review of regulations as being redundant. The legislation concerns artificial humidification, use of kiers and cotton shuttles in the textile industry and the Anthrax Prevention Order 1971. The provisions to be revoked are described along with measures for the maintenance of health and safety standards by the use of more modern legislation. A cost benefit assessment of the proposed revocation is presented.
