It was alarming to read that there has been a growth in the number of businesses targetted by bogus enforcement officers.
As an ex Health and Safety Enforcer- at the time i would wonder why anyone would pretend to be one of them!! but it does give you an 'access all areas' pass into a business premises
So the advice is simple- who ever comes knocking on your door- please do check their ID
All real Inspectors will carry ID with a signature and a number to check that they are who they say they are
An Enforcement Officer whether from the Health and Safety Excutive of from the Local Authority has the right of access at any reasonable time; to talk to any member of staff, to check any records and to check the premises- you must know eho you are letting into your business
They will not generally tring up and make appointments; so be wary if you do recive a call- always ask for the name, the reason for the visit and a contact number- so you can check that they are who they say they are
There have been recent cases of businesses making appointments with person who say they are from the HSE and are in fact unscrupulous consultants!
