Other available dates: email us to book


This workshop will be delivered by a senior HSE inspector 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 takes formal enforcement action, how to influence formal HSE decisions and how to respond to receipt of a notice.

The course will cover:

  • The legal basis for HSE taking formal enforcement action and the basic format of the Improvement and Prohibition Notice.
  • How HSE inspectors form their judgement about whether to serve formal notices - 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 enforcement decision.
  • Options for both formal and informal actions that are available to a business receiving a notice.

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 have a formal notice put in their hands by an HSE inspector.
