These events are aimed at Local Authority Heads of Service, Councillors and Health and Safety Managers and will address the influence of Local Area Agreements, Local Strategic Partnerships and the impact of the Rogers Review and the Local Better Regulation Office. There will be separate arrangements for event in Scotland and Wales, and colleagues there will hear about these shortly.

It is important that HSE are aware of any prosecutions taken, whether successful or not, so that the LA prosecution statistics are accurate and reliable*. This data will be published on the HSE website alongside HSE statistics in November. Where no prosecutions have been taken, a ‘nil return’ is required.
The closing date for submitting prosecution data, or a nil return, is
28 September 2007.
It is easy to submit this data on the Extranet. From the Extranet home page you will need to click on the ‘Prosecution’ picture and follow the instructions given on screen.
* submission of this information is not mandatory.
