Inspection

Properly prioritising inspections is a high priority for HID in ensuring it delivers its major hazard strategy whilst supporting businesses to grow.

Therefore HID’s Energy Division Offshore aims to ensure its regulatory activity is proportionate to the risks to people, taking into account the operator’s performance in controlling risks. This means that ED Offshore will inspect higher hazard installations and operators with poorer performance more frequently and in greater depth than installations and operators where risks are perceived to be better managed. 

HSE’s policy is to conduct inspections in accordance with the Enforcement Policy Statement, applying the principles of the Enforcement Management Model to regulatory decision making.

ED Offshore will prioritise which installations and operators it inspects based on inherent hazards, operator performance, and other intelligence.

Further detail on how ED Offshore prioritises major hazard inspections offshore can be found in HID Targeting & Prioritisation - Arrangements for Prioritising Major Hazard Inspections Offshore.

Operator performance is judged against criteria set out within the following Inspection Guides:
