Ministers received the Health and Safety Commission's report in January on the effectiveness of the current strategy to promote directors' responsibility for health and safety, the success of the voluntary approach and the need for further legislation. Ministers accepted the Commission's view that the current voluntary approach is working, that further legislation is not needed at the moment but that this would be kept under review.
