The HSE’s plans for the year
The HSE (Health and Safety Executive) has published its
business plan for 2017/18. Will you be affected?
The HSE report identifies that in 2015/16 inspectors
completed around 20,000 workplace inspections, investigated over 6,000
incidents and over 10,000 reported health and safety concerns. In addition,
over 9,000 actions were taken to reduce serious risks - most of which would
have involved issuing prohibition and improvement notices.
What to expect for 2017/2018?
There will be at least 20,000 proactive inspections where
much of the focus will be on managing health risks. Preventing musculoskeletal
injuries and managing manual handling risks are likely to feature prominently.
The prime targets for inspectors will be agriculture;
construction refurbishment; metal, food and wood manufacturing; and the waste
and recycling sectors.
And those areas where complaints have been made or
Another key area is asbestos removal.
Finally the HSE have been told to look at “blue tape”
i.e. where excessive or disproportionate burdens have been placed on smaller
companies who have to deal with the demands of large companies who believe that
their supply chain must manage risks in the same way they do. We will keep you
posted on what the HSE is doing and how this may affect you.
