Energy Division’s Proposed
Policy on Targeting and
Prioritisation
WIG Conference

HSE’s Intervention Policy
•
Enforcement Policy Statement
– Targeting, Proportionality, Consistency,
Transparency, Accountability
•
HID guiding principle (2012)
– Major hazard intervention programme
should be based on a systematic
approach based on
• inherent hazard and
• performance of duty holder in
controlling risk
Major Hazard Sites in UK
288 operational installations +
800 “COMAH” Sites
500 Biohazard Laboratories
500 Licensed Explosive Sites
300 Major Hazard Pipelines
50 Gas Distribution Networks
6 Major Hazard Mines

Principles
•
•
•
Broad classification
•
Major hazard focussed
Information readily available
Preferably based on industry’s own
information
Broad Classifications on Inherent
Hazard
•
•
•
•
•
•
High
Medium
Low
Pictorial view
Not based on a mathematical algorithm
Will require some professional judgement
Example – Draft 5
Inherent Hazard based on PLL
Operator Performance
•
Operator’s performance in complying
with the law to control Major Hazard
risk will influence the depth and
frequency of regulatory scrutiny.
•
Operator Performance against single
inspection topics
– Strategic areas
– Key risk control systems
– Based on standards
Offshore inspection rating topics
Inspection guides
•
•
•
Cover strategic and sector topics
•
•
•
Performance score
Define what we look at
The standard/benchmark against we rate
performance
Enforcement expectations
How we record (COIN requirements)
Operator Performance
Overall Operator Performance
•
•
Work in progress across HID
•
Do not intend to “average” out
compliance gaps.
•
A full picture of performance will be
built up over a number of years
•
We will continue to feedback
performance at each inspection in
usual way
Individual scores of 30-60 are
compliance gaps
Other intelligence may include
[Nothing New]
•
•
Time since last inspection
•
•
Incident data
Issues arising out of other regulatory
contact such as
– safety case assessment
– incident investigations
– complaints
Emerging issues
The concept of
Indicative Resource Levels
Inspection plan progress report
