The HSE is currently carrying out spot checks of workplaces across the country to review what measures businesses have put in place to protect anyone in their workplaces. We are aware of a number of organisations who have received such a visit. You can read about what to expect should you get a visit on the HSE website.
To ensure the HSE can visit as many employers as possible they are working with trained partners to deliver spot checks and visits. Officers that visit premises will be carrying identification from their business and a letter of authorisation from HSE. If you wish to verify an officer that calls or visits your organisation, you can call 0300 790 6896.
