LAC 67/2 (rev5) - Setting priorities and targeting interventions

Annex E – Recording Local Authority Activity and Enforcement Data (the LAE1)

This annex is aimed at helping LAs, especially managers; ensure data is being reported accurately and correctly.  The information from the LAE1 is shared with the Chartered Institute of Public Finance & Accountancy (CIPFA).

Before planning their activity and enforcement and attempting to complete the LAE1 LAs should ensure they are familiar with the contents of this LAC and the following guidance:

Regulatory interventions - principles and recording practices

Staff resources devoted to health and safety enforcement work

This section is to capture the number of officers who hold warrants under HSWA and also how much of their time they are spending on HSWA activity.

Proactive Inspections



Non-inspection interventions



Reactive Visits



Peer Review

The National Code requires LAs to undertake inter-authority peer review. Peer review offers LAs the opportunity to discuss, refresh and share working practices, as well as allowing them to verify that key messages have been understood and necessary change has been properly embedded. Undertaken in an effective and open manner it should raise confidence and competence, by reinforcing and promoting good practice by sharing expertise across LA boundaries.


This section is voluntary and does not constitute a formal part of the LAE1 return. LA’s can use it to share information regarding areas they think LAU and the wider LA community would be interested in hearing about. Some examples of information provided in the past have included new and emerging issues and further information regarding local intelligence lead projects.
