About the session
Steve’s presentation will cover three main topics:
1. Changes in HSE during the past year.
2. An update on HSE’s high priority inspection targets.
3. A summary of higher profile health and safety cases or prosecutions in the region (a backlog in the court system has slowed concluded cases this year).
Steve is team leader of HSE’s Cumbria & North Lancashire Field Operations Division (FOD), Carlisle, part of the largest operational inspectorate in HSE. His remit covers a wide range of employment sectors such as agriculture, construction, domestic gas safety, the entertainment and leisure industry, food and drink manufacturers, the engineering industry, health and social care services, local government, public services, quarries, and risk education.
He and his team aim to ensure that risks to people’s health and safety from work activities are properly controlled. They also provide advice and guidance on how to comply with the law, undertake routine workplace inspections, investigate incidents/accidents and complaints and take enforcement action where necessary.
