Alternatively you could just ignore the Regulations and hope that you don’t get a visit from an HSE inspector! I definitely wouldn’t advise that though. Inspections are carried out by very assertive individuals who they have the right of entry to your premises.
If they find any breaches of the law, they are empowered to levy Fees for Intervention, (FFI) which are now £166 per hour spent on your site or case. The fees are imposed on the person they determine is responsible for those breaches.
If the breach is of a more serious nature then that person can also face additional fines, costs or even prosecution.
The additional FFI costs levied by an HSE Inspector would be far more than the cost of compliance; which is the whole purpose of them.
On top of their other powers, Inspectors can force a total closure of the site until all of their demands for compliance have been met. This would cause huge delays to any project.
