Health and safety inspectors

health and safety inspector

Our inspectors are the frontline of HSE’s life saving work. Whether on a construction site, a farm or at a manufacturing plant, millions of workers come home safe and well because of the difference our regulators make.

From inspecting workplaces to investigating incidents, our people do some of the most important and rewarding work in government. You will play a big part in helping employers manage risk sensibly and proportionately, and Great Britain to work well.

As an inspector, no two days are the same – and every workplace you visit will be different, as will the people you’ll meet.

Your workplace could be in the office, out on site or in court presenting evidence. And because the work is so important, we make a big investment in developing your regulatory skills, knowledge and abilities.

You can make a difference to how Britain works with HSE.
