HSE Inspections

There has been a rise of 43% in “tip-off” based HSE inspections of businesses suspected of inadequate Health & Safety management in the past 12 months.

HSE figures reveal that in 2012-13 there were almost 3475 intelligence prompted inspections, up from 2429 in the previous 12 months. Their sources can include whistleblowing information from company employees or union representatives, complaints by local residents, customers and suppliers, adverse insurance inspection reports or significant numbers of previously reported workplace incidents.

Businesses need to be even more vigilant about maintaining high standards of Health and Safety, as the HSE is now considerably more likely to act on the tip-offs it receives.
