The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has confirmed that its cost recovery scheme will not start until April.

Entitled Fee for Intervention (FFI), the initiative aims to recover costs from people who break health and safety regulations, with the additional time being used for the HSE to work further with businesses to boost their understanding of the scheme.

Gordon MacDonald, HSE's programme director, said: "The Government intends to proceed with the FFI scheme as recommended to ministers by HSE's Board in December in response to the formal consultation that took place last summer."

Mr MacDonald added that discussions are still taking place regarding the technical details of FFI.

In recent weeks, HSE chair Judith Hackitt was shown the health and safety measures in place at Jaguar Land Rover's Castle Bromwich site.

During the tour, Ms Hackitt learnt about the firm's manufacturing approach and its "Safety Commitment", which provides managers at all levels with accountability when it comes to safety.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801319473-ADNFCR
