HSE Fee For Intervention rate increase

Please be advised that HSE’s cost recovery rate for Fee for Intervention (FFI) will increase to £154 per hour with effect from 6th April 2019. This means that businesses that are found to be in material breach of health and safety law will be charged at this new rate. As now, those businesses that meet their legal requirements will not pay anything for HSE’s regulatory activity. HSE must set the FFI rate with the aim of recovering its full cost and in recent years it has operated at a deficit (i.e. cost more than recovered in income). A combination of this and cumulative inflationary pressures support the increased hourly rate. For further information about FFI, please contact: feeforinter

Crane Signage incident

In a recent incident, an acrylic panel detached from a lightbox on the rear jib of a tower crane, striking a local resident.  

 

To avoid similar incidents, ensure an inspection is completed on all light boxes and other accessories attached to tower cranes.

Crane manufacturers approval must be sought when accessories (such as signs, lightboxes and lights) are attached to tower cranes and mechanical fixings must be used to secure panels.

From a design perspective, attachments must be designed to take both wind loads and dynamic forces and approved by temporary works.

An inspection and maintenance regime must be put in place and followed.
