HSE Fees for Intervention ( FFI )
1st October 2012 HSE Introduced the Fee for Intervention (FFI)
The Health and Safety Executive has commenced its "Fee for intervention" (FFI).  This means that from that date, it will be able to recover the cost of health and safety investigations from employers who break health and safety law.

Further information is available in "Guidance on the application of Fee for Intervention (FFI)" (June 2012).

It looks at

- what FFI is
- who FFI applies to
- exemptions to FFI

The guidance defines what a "material breach" is as well as:

- the level of the fee (at October 2012 it
  will be £124 per hour)
- what the fee covers
- the cost of third party involvement
  (such as work by the Health and Safety
  Labs or proffessional divisions) will be
  recovered at full cost
- the situation where there is a breach
  by multiple dutyholders
- administrative and financial
- disputes and repayments
