HSE Campaign Could Cost Industry £1.5m+
11 May 2012
The HSE's annual enforcement initiative could cost the construction industry more than £1.5m.
The HSE intends to introduce a system for recovering the cost of enforcement activity from those who contravene regulations from October 2012. The scheme, known as Fees for Intervention (FFI), is aimed at ensuring those who contravene the law pay for the cost of HSE enforcement activity.
For more on this, see the consultation document (PDF). In the HSE's proposal for extending cost recovery it defines how they plan to reinstate existing fees and to extend the range of activities for which HSE recovers costs.
