HSE Breaches

Clifford McDowell

A breach can be raised by the Health & Safety Executive as part of an investigation or inspection where Health & Safety regulations have been broken, or there has been a failure in compliance. A company may have several breaches logged against them for the same incident as a breach will be reported for each regulation which has been broken.

When the HSE takes court action breaches will be included with the case, each breach will have a unique ID assigned. If you have access to the HSE Enforcement data in DoordaBiz you can see how many breaches have been associated with a case by grouping on the case number.
