|Abstract/Citation:||These Regulations make revocations and amendments to legislation relating to health and safety using powers under the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974. The revocations and amendments concern, discretely, first-aid and docks.
Regulation 4 amends regulation 3(2) of the Health and Safety (First-aid) Regulations 1981 to remove the requirement for the HSE to approve the training and qualifications of appointed first-aid personnel. Regulation 2 is a consequential amendment revoking provisions on fees for these applications and approvals.
Regulation 3 introduces the Schedule, which provides for the revocation of the Docks Regulations 1988. The requirements in the 1988 Regulations are covered by more recent legislation, including that which has been transposed from directives of the European Union. As a consequence of the revocation of the 1988 Regulations, regulation 12(2)(b) of the Merchant Shipping (Safe Loading and Unloading of Bulk Carriers) Regulations 2003 and regulation 3(4)(b) of the Work at Height Regulations 2005 are also revoked. Regulation 5 amends the 2005 Regulations as a consequence of the revocation of the 1988 Regulations, such that special provision for people working at height while engaged in dock operations remains.
