HSE Inspectors’ Guide to Fee for Intervention

HSE Training and Events is to run a 1 day course on HSE Inspectors’ Guide to Fee for Intervention.

Please email your expression of interest


This workshop will be delivered by a former HSE inspectors with more than 25 years of experience and is a rare opportunity to understand your regulator by seeing the world through an inspector's eyes.

You will learn why, when and how HSE serves a Notification of Contravention (NoC) triggering the Fee arrangements, how you can influence that decision and choices for responding to a NoC.

The course will cover:

  • The legal basis for HSE recovering costs under Fee for Intervention
  • How HSE inspectors form their judgement about whether there has been a material breach - the factors that are taken into account and how an inspector forms their opinion.
  • An insight into how businesses can legitimately influence an inspector in their decision to serve a Notice of Contravention
  • Options for both formal and informal actions that are available to a business receiving a NoC

Who should attend?

Health and safety professionals responsible for managing or advising on the interface between businesses and the HSE.  Business owners or senior managers responsible for managing and controlling risks.  Anyone who might receive a Notification of Contravention from HSE.

Please note that there is some content overlap between this course and ' HSE Inspectors' Guide to Improvement and Prohibition Notices' in terms of the principles that Inspectors apply when determining what action to take in response to breaches of health and safety legislation.


The course will be run at the HSL laboratory in the spa town of Buxton. Buxton is in the heart of the Peak District and has good links to mainline train stations and Manchester International Airport.

Details of hotels in the Buxton area can be found at
