Online service to help businesses find way through legislation maze

The government's first commercial website has been set up to provide business with information on health and safety.

The site will allow customers to browse a catalogue of publications on legislation, codes of practices and guidance and sees the government’s first foray into e-commerce.

Bill Callaghan, chair of the Health and Safety Commission, said: ‘E-commerce is taking off as a new means of doing business and it is only right that we are launching this ordering service.

‘Every business must address the health and safety of both its workers and the public. To do that they need good quality advice and straightforward information. This service will help provide access to that.’

The catalogue will contain 1,400 free and priced publications which can be ordered online by account or using a credit card.

A pilot of the website proved successful receiving almost two million hits with an average of 1,700 orders every month.
