Avoid Fees for Intervention
The Health & Safety Executives recent site inspections and crackdown on smaller sites (including renovation projects and basements) means the focus is firmly on small to medium sized building firms. The Fee For Intervention (FFI) initiative was introduced by the Health & Safety Executive (HSE) in October 2012 to improve safety on site. The new regulations meant that the HSE can now recover its costs for any material breach found on site with the hourly rate set at an eye watering £124 with average invoices being around £750.
