Spot checks and inspections continuing during coronavirus pandemic
HSE is continuing to conduct spot checks and inspections on workplaces.
We are carrying out spot checks by calling and visiting workplaces, often unannounced, putting employers on the spot to make sure they are following government guidelines on being COVID-secure.
In order to reach as many workplaces as possible nationally and to support the core work of our inspectors, we are working with trained and approved partners to deliver the spot check calls and visits.
Officers that visit premises will be carrying identification from their business and a letter of authorisation from HSE. If you wish to verify who it is calling you or the officer at your door is working for HSE, please call 0300 790 6896.
HSE is supporting businesses proving advice and guidance on how to manage the risks posed by the virus in the workplace. Most of the checks HSE undertakes indicate that businesses are making workplace adjustments in line with the recommended COVID-secure guidance.
Visit our website for more details on spot checks and inspections, as well as guidance on being COVID-secure.
