It is the government's view is that those businesses who break H&S laws and regulations and put their employees at risk should pay for the cost of the HSE's time in dealing with the matter rather than this cost being borne by the tax payer. From 1st October 2012 all businesses and enterprises throughout the UK that fall under the jurisdiction of the HSE will be liable to face financial charges for the HSE's time in investigating what they consider to be material breaches of H&S law. (Previously this rule only applied to a number of clearly defined manufacturing sectors where Health & Safety (H&S) hazards are significant.) However, there are concerns that this initiative may harm the generally healthy relationship that currently exists between the HSE and businesses. Only time will tell.
