    New chair looks to build on HSE’s success

    The new chair of the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) Board is promising to build on its success as a global leader in workplace health and safety regulation.

    Martin Temple, who led an independent triennial review of the HSE in 2014, has been appointed to the post by the Department for Work and Pensions. He is set to take up his new role on May 1.

    ‘Workplace safety as vital as ever’

    Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Disabled People Justin Tomlinson says while the HSE has “gone from strength to strength” under the leadership of outgoing chair Dame Judith Hackitt, Mr Temple will bring a “wealth of experience” to the role.

    The appointment, he adds, comes at a time when the promotion of workplace health and safety is as “important as ever”.

    ‘Build on HSE success’

    Mr Temple says he has a “long-standing interest in health and safety” and is looking forward to working with the HSE and its board to build on the organisation’s success.

    He has worked in private and public sector roles for over 30 years and is currently a non-executive director of the Sheffield Teaching Hospitals Foundation Trust.

    Other senior roles have included ones with the 600 Group and manufacturers’ organisation EEF.

    He also currently chairs both the Design Council and Warwick Business School’s advisory board as well as being on the council of the University of Warwick.
