The Health and Safety Executive’s (HSE) Fee for Intervention Scheme (FFI) has recently published its figures for February/March 2014, indicating it has made around £1.6m for the Government in the latest invoice run, with 2999 invoices issued to 2925 companies.
These latest figures revealed that invoices for this period are around £108,000 lower than the last invoice run in December 2013 and January 2014. However, the number of invoices issued has increased by 171 on the previous period, and nearly 500 more than the same period last year.
Invoices issued to the manufacturing sector have continued to increase from the outset and are now top the list, moving construction into second. Invoices issued to the service industry have also continued to increase, starting at 244 invoices issued and now at 692, bringing them into the third highest sector.
With regards to region, London, North West and West Midlands seem to have been hit the hardest in this latest period, averaging over £184,500 worth of invoices, with the South East receiving the largest number of invoices at 370.
