HSE inspectors ‘good for business’


HSE inspectors ‘good for business’, says Better Regulation blog

The work of health and safety inspectors on the frontline was praised by the chief executive of the Department for Business's Better Regulation Delivery Office in a blog on the office's website today.

CEO Graham Russell wrote: "Not everything gets the publicity it deserves, particularly when it's about regulatory inspectors contributing to business growth as well as ensuring protection.

"So when I saw this article on the website of Prospect, I thought it could do with a wider airing."

He went on to quote from several of those interviewed for the union's website to mark 40 years since the Robens report behind the Health and Safety at work act. Read the blog, headlined 'Good regulation, good for business'.
