In HSE we recognize that as an organization which regulates health and safety in other workplaces, we must lead by example. It is our staff who delivers our business goals and we attach great importance to ensuring the continued health, safety, welfare and development of our workforce and to minimize the distress and disruption caused by any injuries or work related illness which may occur.

In 2014, we produced a three-year framework setting out key themes for development to continue to build on our positive health and safety culture.

Over the last 12 months we have continued to deliver against those objectives and are seeing a continued improvement in performance. I would like to thank all of the team mentioned in this report and those staff that undertake essential roles as first aiders, fire wardens, DSE administrators and assessors among others for playing a vital part in the management of health and safety across the organization.

A positive health and safety culture needs to be at the core of every successful organization, HSE is no exception to that.


HSE Manager.


HSE is committed to providing its employees with safe conditions of work and has effective management arrangements in place to ensure the well-being of staff and others who may be affected by our activities. Our aim is to minimize the adverse impacts to individuals and the business from ill health and injury.


The HSE Senior Management Team leads on improving health and safety and monitors progress regularly. This is achieved through:

  • Advice from the higher management on the overall direction of health and safety performance within HSE;
  • Consultation with site engineer and supervisors.
  • Competent advice from the Health and Safety Advisor
  • The actions of the HSE coordinators and supervisor who support activity and oversight of the local health and safety issues.
  • Line Managers fulfilling their roles and responsibilities for health and safety, and
  • The Human Resources Directorate who organize health and safety training and manage the occupational health contract.

Planning and implementation

  • The annual health and safety plan is based on a Framework for Health and Safety Management agreed by the CEO. This confirmed our risk-based health and safety objectives for 2011 to 2014.
  • The framework is implemented via the annual corporate plan for health and safety.
  • Based on the number of incidents known to have occurred in HSE and on an assessment of the potential for harm to staff, the following priority areas were identified for action in the 2011-2014 corporate plan:
    • Display Screen Equipment (DSE) related ill health,
    • Work related road risk
    • Lone working and site visits, and Work related stress.

Planning and implementation

These priority areas are in addition to routine day to day health and safety management activities.

Advice and support

  • The primary health and safety advice is provided by the Health and Safety Advisor's Unit, who provide support on all aspects of health and safety at work for staff based in HSE offices.
  • The Health and Safety Advisor's Unit are supported business that provides the first point of contact for any health and safety issues which arise. This important role provides extra support and advice at a regional level and assists managers in discharging their health and safety responsibilities.
