HSENI new draft Corporate Plan 2018-2023 published

The Health and Safety Executive for Northern Ireland (HSENI) has published its new draft Corporate Plan following the recent consultation exercise. Whilst still in draft form, HSENI has confirmed that this document will be used to set its priorities until the Minister for the Economy is back in place to consider the draft.

The new draft Corporate Plan can be viewed here.

HSENI has also published a summary of the various consultation responses, including CEFs. HSENI have noted the majority of comments whilst agreeing to consider the feasibility of:

  • the suggestion to distinguish between safety and occupational health when presenting statistical trends.
  • working with CEF on uniform guidance to assist the construction industry in relation to occupational health including mental health awareness
  • HSENI playing a co-ordinating role to ensure the various occupational health services available provide a clear and consistent message.

Members should take note of the document and in particular the construction section on page 20 which highlights HSENI’s priorities for construction during the plan’s lifetime.
