Remove requirement to keep paper copies of health and safety files

Comment 3rd July 2010

The law currently requires a paper copy of health and safety files to be kept by businesses, which can be audited in person by the Health and Safety Executive. These are produced and then have to be put in storage for long periods.

If an organisation has a secure and auditable electronic system which can store these documents, which could be accessed by the HSE, then a paper copy shouldn't doesn't need to be kept.

Why does this matter?

This would reduce costs for businesses and save paper, which would help the environment.

It would also make the process of creating, editing, storing and auditing health and safety documentation quicker.
