Whilst I have regular meetings with senior officials from HSE, there have been no specific discussions about the findings in the Workplace Health Expert Committee (WHEC) report: Risks of bakery work: the adverse effects of working in high temperatures and of occupational asthma.

HSE receives an annual report from WHEC which includes any reports the committee has published. HSE, via its Chief Scientific Adviser, is due to provide a formal response to the next report in Spring 2018.
