Impact assessments

The Health and Safety Executive, as with other government agencies and departments, is required to prepare Impact Assessments for its proposals. HSE economists provide advice and support for this, including examining the rationale for government intervention, identifying potential options, and assessing costs, benefits and risks. Further information on HSE Impact Assessments, together with copies of final IAs are available. Partial IAs for proposals that are currently open to consultation may be accessed via the related consultative document.
