It has been proposed newly by the Health and Safety Executive that small health organizations would from now on be required to pay for their health and safety inspections themselves. However, the same is being considered as a controversial matter by the Forum of Private Business or FPB.
On one hand, the HSE says that the Fee for Intervention proposals serve as a best way to recover costs. While on the other hand, FPB is of the opinion that some and not all of the small firms show material breach. It says that the law should be applicable for only those who disregard health and safety rules deliberately.
It is being said by the group that the same move may lead individual inspectors to conclude wrongly what a breach is constituted by. “Our members want help, guidance and support, which is what our Health and Safety Guide provides, not ever more threats of financial penalties”, affirmed chief executive Phil Orford.
Besides, the proposals put forth in October last year during a consultation are concerning since small business and regulators have difficultly built trust over years on each other. And this definition of material breach may shake the same again.
