Public Register of Prosecutions and Enforcement Notices.

The aims of the Health and Safety Executive for Northern Ireland [HSENI] are to protect the health, safety and welfare of employees and to safeguard others who may be exposed to risks from work activities. A brief guide for businesses, employees and their representatives on what to expect from a Health and Safety Inspector's workplace visit may be found under "What to expect when a Health and Safety Inspector calls ".

HSENI inspectors normally enforce health and safety standards by giving advice on how to comply with the law. Sometimes, however, inspectors must order people to make improvements by issuing them with a notice, either an Improvement Notice which allows time for a recipient to comply or a Prohibition Notice which prohibits an activity until remedial action has been taken.

HSENI issues notices to companies and individuals for breaches of health and safety law and/or where imminent risk of serious injury exists. If necessary HSENI may prosecute recipients for non-compliance with a notice. More details on enforcement guidelines may be found under Enforcement Guidelines for Health and Safety at Work in Northern Ireland

This part of the HSENI website gives details of enforcement notices issued by HSENI inspectors from April 2007 and subsequently by calendar year. Notices will appear on the Register for a period of five years.

HSENI has taken steps to ensure that notices which are withdrawn or subject to appeal are not included.
