Dry run for FFI for the HSE

17 November 2011

HSE has been consulting on plans to extend cost recovery for breaches of health and safety law.

The consultation, which closed on 14 October 2011, looked at how the scheme will operate. 

A ‘dry run’ to see how well it works in practice began in October and will last until 9 December. At this stage, we will be testing HSE’s new procedures and understanding of the scheme by businesses, but no actual costs will be recovered.

The scheme, known as ‘fee for intervention’ (FFI) means businesses found to have broken health and safety laws will pay the costs incurred by HSE in helping them to put matters right, rather than the public purse.

The scheme is part of the Government’s policy announced in Good Health and Safety, Good for Everyone which aims to make a fresh start with health and safety regulation. FFI is set to be introduced from as early as April 2012
