To suggest that we are going to see a plethora of head-related injuries because the HSE has revoked the Head Protection Regs (Union hits out at confusion […], 12 April) is a little far fetched.

There is still sufficient legislation through risk assessment and the Personal Protective Equipment Regs to ensure hard hats will not go the way of the dodo.
