HSE diversity survey statistics as at 31 March 2015

The following results are based on staff in post (headcount) and exclude agency, temporary staff and inward secondees/loans. All data is from the HSE’s internal HR information system.


HSE staff are given the opportunity to declare their diversity data via a ‘self service’ electronic HR system. Please note the figures for disability, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion and belief only include those who have chosen to declare their status; it does not include those who have chosen the option ‘Prefer not to say’. The following tables reflect all the diversity information that is available via this system. 

The Office for Nuclear Regulation (ONR) ceased to be part of HSE on the 1st April 2014 and therefore this is the first year of reporting without their diversity data.
