About the Offences and Penalties Report

The Offences and Penalties Report is an annual report on the enforcement action taken by HSE in the last year. It presents key statistics and links to the full enforcement database which shows the names of all those who have been served with an enforcement notice, or convicted of a health and safety offence. We know that businesses, insurers, the legal profession, trade unions, journalists and others make use of this information; we also know that by making these details public, we help to keep up the pressure for improvement in health and safety standards. However, as the information contained in this report only covers HSE’s formal enforcement activities, we are considering how best to change the format and coverage of the report so that next year we can include local authorities’ enforcement data too.
