Health and safety investigations

We carry out inspections according to the level of risk we think likely at any premises. We are guided by the national code and our accident and incident selection criteria.

During an inspection, we focus on activities that are responsible for the most cases of ill-health or the greatest number of serious accidents. We also investigate complaints concerning poor welfare facilities for employees.

Where we find work conditions do not meet required standards, we will take appropriate action. The type of enforcement action in any case will be determined by our enforcement policy.
