Health and Safety Executive

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) is an independent watchdog and regulator which acts in the public interest to reduce work-related deaths, improve safety and prevent illness in workplaces in Great Britain.

They run awareness and safety campaigns throughout the year, highlighting issues affecting millions of UK workers.

They ask employees, business leaders, workers and workers representatives to contribute to their work in creating and evolving their strategy.

Their work aims to make real change to Britain’s workers: 180 people lost their lives as a result of their work during 2008-09, and over one million were made ill or were injured while at work.

The HSE also enforces health and safety regulations. Recently they prosecuted a firm which had modified a lid-making machine which caused an accident and an employee lost four fingers.

I understand the importance of being safe at work, so if you’ve been injured at work please contact me to find out more about how I can represent you.
