Cost Recovery for Health and Safety Regulation

19th August 2012

The HSE's Fee for Intervention Scheme will come into effect on 1 October 2012.

This scheme will put a duty on the HSE to recover the costs of carrying out its regulatory functions from those found to be in material breach of the law. The idea is to shift some of the cost of health and safety regulation from the tax payer to non-compliant businesses. However, this means that companies could be charged tens of thousands of pounds before a criminal penalty has even been levied. Please join us at this informative breakfast seminar where there will be a presentation on the key aspects of the scheme, including what costs are recoverable, the meaning of a "material breach" and the impact for business of the changes. The floor will then be opened up for discussion and sharing of best practice. Programme 08.00 Registration and breakfast 08.30 Presentation 09.30 Questions and answers 10.00 Close
