The factory legislation in this country has been concerned with safety training in one way or another for a very long time; but it is only relatively recently that it seems to have squared up to the needs of those who have to organise and give the training, by being more explicit. The statutory requirements are contained in a wide range of legislation: in the Factories Act, 1961 itself, numerous codes of Special Regulations, ordinary regulations, so‐called Welfare Orders and other Orders. Some of the subsidiary legislation is very old: the Electricity Regulations, applying to nearly every factory in the land are dated 1908.
