If you receive a call or visit from HSE, you should participate in the spot check as failure to do so could lead to enforcement action.
Please note, in order to reach as many workplaces as possible nationally and to support the core work of our inspectors, HSE is working with trained and approved partners to deliver the spot check calls and visits.
Officers that visit premises will be carrying identification from their business and a letter of authorisation from HSE. Calls currently come up as an unknown number. If you wish to verify an officer that calls or visits your organisation, please call 0300 790 6896.
If you receive an inspection from a HSE inspector, they will carry an official warrant card to prove identity.
