HSE Audit & Review for DWP
Last year a review was launched by the Department for Works and Pensions to assess the functions of the Health & Safety Executive (HSE) to see whether the duties could be delivered better elsewhere.
The outcome of the review was released on the 26th June 2014 and showed glowing praise for the HSE and their work.
The Government, therefore decided to maintain the HSE’s independence as the UK’s Health & Safety regulator to continue to operate as a non-departmental public body.
A decision greatly welcomed by companies and organisations, especially IOSH who offered strong support in maintaining the HSE’s current status.
