HSE begins fee for intervention

The Health and Safety Executive’s (HSE) new cost recovery scheme, Fee For Intervention (FFI), will come into force on Monday, 1 October 2012.

Under The Health and Safety (Fees) Regulations 2012, those who break health and safety laws are liable for recovery of HSE’s related costs. The costs included; inspection, investigation and taking enforcement action.

Many businesses comply with their legal obligations. As a result, they will continue to pay nothing.

Detailed guidance for businesses and organisations is available on HSE’s website. Developed in consultation with representatives from the industry.

Geoffrey Podger, HSE’s Chief Executive, said:.

“The most basic safety mistakes in the workplace can devastate lives. This can result in real costs to industry.

It is right that those who fail to meet their legal obligations should pay HSE’s costs. Rather than the public purse having to do so.”.

Fee for Intervention provides a further incentive for businesses to manage health and safety effectively. The will also be provided with the incentive to operate within the law. It should also help level the playing field between those who comply and those who don’t.
