Reduced funding for HSE

Following a cut of over a third to its budget since 2010, the Health and Safety Executive has been advised of a further 12% reduction in funding to 2019-20 as the Government seeks to deal with the public sector deficit.

In response, HSE has drawn up a strategy called Helping Great Britain Work Well. The plan includes a commitment to 20,000 proactive inspections in the current financial year along with the inspection of up to 1,000 asbestos removal sites.
