That is according to EEF - which represents around 25 per cent of the UK's manufacturing companies - as the organisation has recently completed its annual survey with regard to health and safety in the workplace.
EEF found that many firms in Britain are concerned about the possibility of even more red tape being implemented and stated that "case study guidance" is perceived as the most effective method of preventing accidents at work.

Mr Pointer added that a "coalition for change" between EU states is needed in this field.
