HSE raises Fee For Intervention rates

In October 2012 The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) introduced Fees For Intervention (FFI) which authorised the HSE to charge organisations for the costs involved in investigating, issuing notices and assisting in correcting material breaches of health and safety regulations. This represents an hourly rate based on the amount of time taken by an inspector in dealing with the breach.

Initially this fee was charged at £124 per hour and was subsequently increased to £129 per hour. However, the latest accounts issued by HSE show that despite generating a revenue of £15 million the FFI scheme generated a deficit of £1.9 million in 2017/18 and a deficit of £1.7 million in 2016/17.

The HSE has now announced a more significant increase in the rate that FFI will be changed to £154 per hour.
