Working with COPFS and the Police in Scotland

Investigation of health and safety offences – working with the procurator fiscal and the police – HSE operates and applies the same policies and standards throughout Great Britain however, an important difference for HSE and other health and safety regulators in Scotland, is that while in England and Wales HSE makes the decision to prosecute and conducts cases ourselves, in Scotland prosecution decisions and the conduct of cases is entirely for the procurator fiscal.
