HSE should work with businesses ahead of FFI

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) should ensure that it works alongside businesses so that they understand the Fee for Intervention (FFI) cost recovery scheme, an expert believes.

Matt St John, head of health and safety services at C&C Consulting, told that it is critical that HSE capitalises on the time between now and October in order to work with businesses and help them understand the initiative.

The FFI project aims to recover costs from companies that break health and safety laws and will launch in October 2012, charging £124 per hour to investigate material breaches.

"With the right proactive approach and confidence in the relevance of expert health and safety advice organisations can begin to exploit the new era of clearer and more concise regulation to minimise employee accidents," Mr St John noted.

As well as the financial repercussions of not adhering to health and safety, firms that do not protect their staff effectively can also suffer reputation damage, which may impact on recruitment of new employees.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801405850-ADNFCR
