Does health and safety need reviewing?
The government is promising to check the "growth of compensation culture" by setting up a review of health and safety laws. What is your reaction?
Lord Young will investigate concerns over the "application and perception" of health and safety legislation and the "rise of the compensation culture over the last decade."He said he hopes his review will "reintroduce an element of common sense" to the rules.
Prime Minister David Cameron said it was time for "a sensible new approach" which did not "overwhelm business with red tape". But unions have warned against attacks on rules that protect staff at work.
Have you been affected by health and safety rules at work? Have the rules encouraged compensation claims? How much do health and safety laws protect people?
