UK HSE Fee for Intervention (FFI)

Graham Marshall - Monday, October 01, 2012

The United Kingdom's Health and Safety Executive's (UK HSE) new cost recovery scheme, Fee for Intervention (FFI), came into force today, Monday, 1st October 2012.

Under The Health and Safety (Fees) Regulations 2012, those who break UK health and safety laws are liable for recovery of HSE's related costs, including, inspection, investigation and taking enforcement action.

The many businesses that comply with their legal obligations will continue to pay nothing.

Detailed guidance for businesses and organizations is available on HSE's website.

Developed in consultation with representatives from industry, it explains how the scheme works and includes examples of how it will be applied.

Geoffrey Podger, HSE's Chief Executive, said: "The most basic safety mistakes in the workplace can devastate lives and result in real costs to industry.

It is right that those who fail to meet their legal obligations should pay HSE's costs rather than the public purse having to do so."

Fee for Intervention provides a further incentive for UK-based businesses to manage OHS risks effectively and to operate within the law.

It should also help level the playing field between those who comply and those who don't.

Employers can find practical advice, tools and case studies for controlling common risks and ensuring compliance with health and safety law on HSE's website
