HSE Under Review
30 April 2013
Employment minister Mark Hoban has announced a review of the Health and Safety Executive, as part of the Government's commitment to reform the public sector, reports the SHP (Safety & Health Practitioner).
There is a substantive review at least every three years to ensure that their functions remain necessary, and should be delivered independently of the Government. The review will assess whether there is a continuing need for the HSE's functions, as well as whether it is complying with the principles of good governance.
