The Rt Hon Lord Young of Graffham undertook a Whitehall-wide review of the operation of health and safety laws and the growth of the compensation culture. His report ‘Common Sense, Common Safety’ was published in October 2010.
The Prime Minister and the Cabinet accepted Lord Young’s report and recommendations in full.
The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) has assumed overall responsibility for the implementation of Lord Young’s recommendations. We will publish reports on the progress the government is making in implementing the recommendations of ‘Common Sense, Common Safety’.
The progress report lists all the recommendations – according to the government body which is responsible for implementing them – and will be regularly updated.
