The Independent Regulatory Challenge Panel provides an independent means for any person (whether companies or individuals) to complain about the actions of Local Authority health and safety regulators.
Complaints may only be referred to the Panel if they have first been raised locally and it has not been possible to resolve the matter.
The Panel will consider complaints from companies or individuals who have been visited by HSE or LA health and safety inspector and who believe that the visit was not justified as being in accordance with a risk based approach to targeting proactive inspections.
They will also consider complaints where the advice given by the HSE or LA health and safety regulator is incorrect or not proportionate to the risks.
