All health and safety legislation was subject to independent review by Professor Ragnar Löfstedt in 2011. As part of the review, Professor Löfstedt was also asked to review comments received through the Government’s Red Tape Challenge on health and safety regulation. There was no specific comment on the adequacy of legislation covering electrical safety in care homes received from either review.
