Health and safety inspection costs criticised by FPB

17th July 2012 | Health and Safety Signs

Plans to force small businesses to pay for their own health and safety inspections has been criticised by the Forum of Private Business (FPB).

As part of the Fee for Intervention (FFI) proposals, companies that are in "material breach" of the Health and Safety Executive's (HSE) rules would need to pay hourly rates for inspections.

Members of the FPB are worried that this approach is unfair and may lead to a heavy-handed approach.

Phil Orford, FPB chief executive, said: "Businesses which deliberately flout health and safety rules should be brought to task but this is not how the vast majority operate - clearly it is not in their best interests to allow lax health and safety procedures to exist."

These comments come after a representative from C&C Consulting told that HSE should take advantage of the time between now and the FFI's enforcement to help businesses understand the scheme.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801408848-ADNFCR
