Health and safety

Health and safety inspections

We will visit workplaces to carry out inspections for the following reasons:

  •  Receipt of an accident notification
  • Workplace complaints
  •  Local knowledge of health and safety issues
  • National priorities for addressing poor standards of health and safety

We check businesses are meeting their legal requirements by looking at documentation (risk assessments, work instructions, training records) and visual inspection. 

We will take action where businesses fail to comply with legislation in accordance with our enforcement policy. This may result in verbal advice or  prosecution. The action taken will be proportionate, targeted, consistent and transparent.
