Detail

The independent triennial review lead by Martin Temple concluded that the functions performed by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) are still required and that it should be retained as a Non-Departmental Public Body (NDPB). The report sets out the review process, an analysis of HSE’s functions, measures to improve for the future and considers arrangements for corporate governance.

A call for evidence and summary of the responses received has also been published as part of this review.

The government response

The government response to the Triennial Review sets out the actions being taken or that will be taken in relation to Mr Temple’s recommendations.
