Health & Safety should always be right at the front of your mind as an employer, whether you’re being inspected or not. However, we know that the prospect of an inspection can be intimidating, and it can make you second-guess whether your Health & Safety measures are properly up to scratch.
In 2020/21, 185 cases were successfully prosecuted – or referred to COPFS for prosecution in Scotland – by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), and there was £26.9 million in fines resulting from those convictions.
Although fewer fines were issued than the year before, the average fine per case has increased from £107,000 to £145,000. This makes it more important than ever to make sure you’re getting Health & Safety right in your business – because the financial and reputational hit if you don’t could be huge.
