The real costs of Fee for Intervention (FFI)


The HSE have released figures highlighting the volume of revenue being generated by their cost recovery scheme. As the infographic below illustrates, every area of the UK has been affected.

How is FFI calculated?

From the moment a material breach is found, the HSE will begin to charge £124 per hour – and the clock doesn’t stop until the issue has been fully resolved and re-inspected.

The average cost of intervention activity, as calculated by the HSE, is likely to be:

  • Inspection, resulting in letter – £750
  • Inspection, resulting in enforcement notice – £1,500
  • Investigations – Could be tens of thousands of pounds
