Health and Safety Inspections

Which premises do we inspect?

LA regulators follow a risk based approach to target health and safety interventions .  We concentrate our work where the risks are likely to be highest and where it will have the greatest impact.

Unannounced proactive health and safety inspections are therefore reserved for high risk  activities and sectors published by HSE or when intelligence suggests risks are not being effectively managed.

The list of activities/ sectors for proactive inspection by LAs is listed in Annex A of the National Code (opens new window)

The type of sectors which are to be targeted each year will also be set out in the annual service plan Health and Safety service plan  Appendix 1  Appendix 2
