HSE’s commitment is to act as an enabling and proportionate regulator for the Commonwealth Games, seeking to influence and obtain assurances from dutyholders through early intervention with them.
HSE will also offer strategic direction and support to our local authority co-regulators and encourage them to adopt the same approach to regulation.
HSE has been working closely with Glasgow 2014 throughout the construction project, providing advice and input to ensure that key risks are identified and appropriate control measures put in place.
The task of staging the Games includes transforming new and existing venues as well as building temporary venues for competition, hospitality, events and celebrations.
Local authorities are the lead health and safety regulators for most Games-related activity during the competition events.
