The HSE Enforcement Policy Statement has been updated to reflect the HSC/E merger and to take into account factual changes since their original publication. Please note that although there have been factual changes to the EPS, there has been no change to the policy and as a result, there will be no change in current enforcement practice. The EPS remains fundamentally the same as the statement that was agreed as fit for purpose in 2007. The section of the EPS containing a table showing maximum penalties will require further factual change should the Health and Safety (Offences) Bill become law. Publication of a print version of the update has therefore been deferred.
