HSE opens consultation on LA National Code

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has opened a consultation on plans to make sure LA health and safety inspections focus on workplaces with extremely serious risks.

It also hopes to ensure locations where there is evidence of poor performance are looked at more strictly, with the code aiming to guarantee greater consistency with regard to health and safety in the UK.

Elaine Harbour, head of the local authority unit at HSE, said: "The code sets out how their interventions should be targeted on higher risk activities, businesses and sectors. We want to hear from businesses and local authorities who will be affected by the proposals as part of the consultation process."

The consultation will run until March 1st and is available on the HSE website.

Recently, the HSE announced that dangerous safety failings by Aberystwyth-based Superior Plumbing Installations caused two workers to be left vulnerable to asbestos fibres during a refurbishment project on flats in the area.

The firm was fined £5,000 and ordered to pay £3,830 in costs.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801512245-ADNFCR
