Covid safety update: HSE spot checks and inspections during pandemic

The Health and Safety Executive is carrying out spot checks and inspections on all types of businesses in all areas to ensure they are COVID-secure.

By calling and visiting premises and speaking directly to employers, HSE can check that the measures you’ve put in place are in line with government guidance. Under health and safety law you must respond to these calls and engage with HSE.

Where businesses are not managing the risks of coronavirus, HSE will take immediate action by

  • Providing advice and guidance
  • Stopping certain work practices until they are made safe
  • Issuing enforcement notices
  • Prosecuting where businesses fail to comply

To ensure that your business is Covid-secure and to be ready for spot checks and inspections, contact us today to arrange a Covid Review with one of our experienced consultants.
