The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has issued a warning for companies to ignore any information they may receive from two firms claiming to regulate health and safety legislation.
Companies have reported receiving requests for payment in return for compliance with health and safety law.
You are urged to ignore any correspondence you may receive from either the ‘Health and Safety Registration Enforcement Division’ or the ‘Health and Safety Enforcement Agency’.
Businesses have received requests for payment of up to £249 to ensure they comply with health and safety law. The ‘Health and Safety Enforcement Agency’ has made similar requests from companies.
The Health and Safety Executive has stated that these companies are not official bodies and anyone should be very wary of any approach from these firms.
Please contact the HSE on 08701 545500 if you are contacted by either of these companies.
