HSE backtrack on paid-for inspections

Last year, the Department for Work and Pensions asked the Health and Safety Executive to explore the opportunity of selling inspection services to larger employers, as a way to generate revenue.

It appears this idea has now been abandoned, or at least put on the back-burner, following discussions with several target organisations. The official line is that HSE found little enthusiasm from those employers who had been offered the chance to purchase inspection and consultancy services directly from the regulator.
