    HSE will have had £100m funding cut by decade end

    HSE will have had £100m funding cut by decade end

    The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has promised it will strive to maintain its current levels of activity despite the prospect of seeing the funding it gets from central government continue to fall over the next four years.

    By 2019/20, the amount of money given to the HSE will be more than £100 million less than it was in 2009/10, it has been revealed.

    According to the HSE’s 2016/17 business plan, its funding from the Department for Work and Pensions will fall each year up to 2019/20.

    By then the agency will be receiving £123.4 million – 46% less than the £231 million it was given in 2009/10.

    The current financial year will see the HSE operating on a budget of £141 million.

    Year’s priorities set out

    But the business plan says despite the financial challenge, it will seek to maintain its enforcement, inspection, investigation and permissioning activities.

    The plan also sets out the HSE’s priorities for the coming year.

    They include occupational ill-health, revising its approach to creating and publishing guidance and its communications with small and medium-sized businesses.

    It also details the organisation’s intention to simplify rules governing the use of chemicals.

    They include the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations, the Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations and the Control of Lead at Work Regulations.
