After I have read the Health & Safety Act 1974, i have realised that it is a 100 pages long act and there are so many regulations attached to it. It is a fairly complicated fact with responsibilties attached to both employers and employees. Just a little thought after i have read it.
Obviously it carries the advantage of keeping the work environment safe. however the complication might stop potential entrepruners to stop from starting a business. Furthermore would those employees found that most of the issues are repeated and they might find that there are so many red-tapes to follow the whole legislation.
Finally some companies might decide to get away from the act by not directing employin people. Instead, they will ask their employees to register as self-employed so that they can get away from compensation and responsibility if injuries are occured
