CD216 - Equality Scheme Framework: Race equality scheme

This consultation ended on 14 July 2008

We have reviewed our existing race equality scheme and following this have developed a new agenda for action. This document sets out in full how we will meet the duties to promote race equality as a public body and as an employer. We would like comments from our external stakeholders on the priorities which impact on our interface with them as regulators. In particular those priorities set out at pages 7 and 8 under the heading “for everyone” and the race action plan priorities, actions 1 – 5 at Annex 1.

We will consult and invite comments from our staff and our Trade Unions, in particular on the priorities for our staff set out at pages 8 -9 under the heading “for our staff” and race action plan priorities, actions 6 -11 at Annex 1.

To reflect the Health and Safety Executive's approach to diversity, our race equality scheme has been incorporated into an overarching framework. We outline:

  • our approach to diversity;
  • where we are on race equality;
  • our priorities for our race equality scheme;
  • how we have consulted people;
  • our approach to monitoring;
  • our race equality action plan.

Responses should be sent by 14 July 2008 to:
