Food manufacturing inspections underway

HSE's series of proactive inspections of health and safety standards in food manufacturing businesses have begun.

Changes to working with ionising radiation

Due to changes in regulation, you may need to contact HSE to notify, register or get consent for any ionising radiation work being carried out. 

A new set of Ionising Radiation Regulations (IRR17) came into force on 1 January (replacing IRR99). If you work with ionising radiation one of the biggest changes is the way you submit information to HSE.
