Forum for Private Business reacts to fee for intervention rules

The Forum for Private Business has reacted to the new fee for intervention rules stipulated by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).

As a result of the move, companies that break laws now have to cover the cost of their own inspections, which the group believes could prompt heavy-handed treatment.

Alex Jackman, the forum's senior policy advisor, told the HSE to clarify what constitutes a breach.

"We want every government department to understand the significant financial demands on business at present. There needs to be greater understanding shown by enforcement officers that firms face a number of inspections from multiple agencies across all aspects of their business," Mr Jackman noted.

The remarks come after Sarah Daniels, chartered practitioner at the RedCat Partnership, noted that several businesses are unsure about their health and safety duties.

She claimed that guidance is often unclear for companies and difficult to read.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801462096-ADNFCR
