Below is an EXAMPLE of a Similar Type Essay from INTERNET about UK and US Health and safety legistion(Full Text attached):

Since the adoption in the 1970s in the UK and USA of major health and safety legislation the protections laid down in each jurisdiction have been gradually eroded and altered to reflect an increased business friendly regulatory approach. The reduction has been necessary in part to reduce the ever increasing amount of secondary regulation and guidance from the enforcement agencies. However though, the inherent evil involved in the process is that it arguably reduces protection for workers although some would argue that the complexity of the regimes as they stand prevents business from implementing standards effectively and also affects workers. The deregulatory drive has gained such strength that legislators are now considering the alternatives to state regulation, some of which will be examined below. More importantly though, the deregulatory drives themselves must be examined in depth to allow consideration of the reasons behind deregulation, the methods employed to reduce the effect of legislation, the present efforts on both sides of the Atlantic and whether the deregulatory drive is showing signs of coming to a natural or other conclusion.

The trend towards deregulation described in Crombie s dissertation is not restricted to the US and UK, it is either being implemented or considered in many other countries. It does polarise opinion but the debate tends to focus on principal rather than any evidence of its impact on safety.
