We prepare and publish specific and measurable equality objectives, at least every four years, which help HSE to further the three aims of the Equality Duty.
We launched our Single Equality Scheme (SES) in 2010. While the Scheme is now archived, many of the objectives are ongoing and still relevant. Having reviewed the SES objectives, those that remain relevant are captured in our new Equality Objectives, together with new objectives identified following analysis of the published equality data.
It is important to note that HSE’s equality objectives do not capture all the work that is carried out with the aim of improving equality such as our outreach work, working with diverse migrant worker community groups to raise awareness and draw attention to key health and safety messages.
Progress against HSE Equality objectives is recorded in our Diversity Action plan.
