HSE Business Plan 2012-15
Published: 17 Jul 2012
The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) have announced details of their business plan for 2012-15, which sets out the ambitious and challenging range of activities they will carry out over the next three years to deliver improvements in the health and safety performance of Great Britain.
The plan is a mix of continuing "business as usual" activities in many frontline areas whilst also delivering significant reform. If successful, by 2015 the HSE will have:
- reduced and simplified the stock of regulation without reducing levels of protection;
- made it easier for people to understand what is required, leading to increased levels of compliance;
- devoted a greater proportion of effort where risks are highest and where they can have greatest impact;
- continued to hold to account those who expose their employees and others to unnecessary risk; and
- drawn a clearer distinction between real health and safety and the bureaucratic over-interpretation which gets in the way.
The HSE hope that this will lead to better leadership and implementation by employers and an even greater engagement of employees in order to prevent death, injury and ill health caused by work.
