The HSE’s plans for the year

The HSE (Health and Safety Executive) business plans for 2017/18 have been published. Will you be affected?
 
In 2015/16, HSE 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.
 
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; wood manufacturing; the waste and recycling sectors; areas where complaints have been made or accidents reported; and 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.
