HSE’s Inspection plan 2016-17

HSE announces that the purpose of the 2016-17 Inspection Programme is to target sectors where substances causing cancer, asthma and silicosis are regularly used, produced or process generated, to ensure the risks are properly managed.

Ill health effects from exposure to these substances can be chronic and life-changing and every year many workers develop occupational asthma or occupational cancer as a result of exposures to substances in their workplace.

The inspection programme includes aluminium and copper production and casting of iron, steel and non-ferrous metals.
