HSE Fees For Intervention (FFI) - Figures Published for Second Run of Invoices


The Health & Safety Executive (HSE) has published figures for the second run of invoices for the period 1 December 2012 to 31 January 2013 for monies recovered through Fees For Intervention (FFI). They reveal that around £857,000 was recovered through FFI, which is around a £100,000 increase on the previous period. The HSE issued almost 500 more invoices than in the previous invoice period amounting, to a total of 1,807.

These were as a result of 3,062 proactive inspections carried out in the second period, and 60 percent of those resulted in an invoice being raised. Manufacturing accounted for 43 per cent of the raised invoices and was the highest sector followed by construction at 30 percent.

The figure is expected to be significantly higher in the third period due to the blitz on construction sites carried out in that period; this resulted in 1 in 5 sites being issued with an invoice. The average invoice was valued at £474, which equates to around four hours of the inspectors time.

The HSE has previously stated that firms who comply with the requirements of the law will have nothing to fear from the introduction of Fees For Intervention, as they can only raise an invoice as a result of a material breach. As a result, it is imperative that companies have robust safety management systems in place to avoid these and other associated costs. It is also extremely important for organisations to ensure their employees receive a high standard of training in health and safety so that they are more aware of the dangers that face them in the workplace, and allows them to work in a manner which will reduce the chances of an accident occurring to themselves or a colleague.
