The HSE has the right to close a business for a long time until it next decides to visit, which can thereby put it out of high turnover business out of business. This cannot be right. There has a be a balance whereby the HSE can act responsibly to assist the Business, and to ensure employee safety. At present, the HSE only deals with Business HSE matters. The HSE should also be involved in Public & Home matters where the public are at serious risk and where most are injured, rather than in the workplace. The HSE refuse to get involved with public matters presently, which leaves a huge percentage of the population at risk because no other body officiates on serious Public HSE matters, not even local Authorities. This needs to alter to protect the public.
Reduce the amount of legislation the HSE perpetrates on Business.
