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.
Where circumstances warrant it HSENI inspectors may identify and recommend prosecution against an individual or corporate body. More details on enforcement, including prosecution, may be found under “Enforcement Guidelines for Health and Safety at Work in Northern Ireland “
This part of the HSENI website gives details of prosecution cases taken on behalf of HSENI and which resulted in a successful conviction.
To account for the appeal process a period of nine weeks will elapse following conviction before a case is added to the public register. Where HSENI is notified of an appeal outside this period the case will be removed from the site. Prosecutions will appear on the register for a period of 5 years.
