Are you struggling with Blue Tape?

HSE are concerned at the amount of “Blue Tape” that businesses have to cope with. Blue Tape is similar to Red Tape but instead of being generated by Government, it is created by business on business.

If you are being asked to jump through hoops by customers in the name of Health and Safety and you consider the requests to be unnecessary or unreasonable, then you can report it to the HSE who are keen to address the problem. You can email them details to and we would appreciate it if you could copy in to the email.

For your information, ceda is working on a standard subcontractor response form and any information that you provide will help us with the development of this.
