HSE spot checks and inspections continue during lockdown

HSE spot checks and inspections on businesses will continue during lockdown.

Further to this, HSE will increase the number of calls and visits to check COVID-secure measures are in place, in accordance with government guidance.

To protect workers, visitors and customers, employers must make sure everyone is following the measures put in place to manage the risks from coronavirus.

During the calls and visits, HSE provides advice and guidance to manage risk and protect workers and visitors.

However, where businesses are not managing this, they will take immediate action.

The CIP Health and Safety Manual and CIP Knowledge can signpost businesses to the most up-to-date industry and government guidance on how to ensure COVID-secure workplaces.

You can also find further information on HSE spot checks and inspections on the HSE website.
