HELA - Health and Safety Executive/Local Authority Enforcement Liaison Committee

HELA was set up in 1975 to provide effective liaison between the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and local authorities (LAs).  HELA provides strategic oversight of the co-regulatory relationship between HSE and local authorities with a view to maximising effectiveness, improving health and safety outcomes and ensuring health and safety legislation is enforced in a targeted, proportionate, consistent and transparent way.

HELA also provides a national forum for discussion and exchange of information on LA activity and enforcement.
