Please be aware that someone impersonating a HSE Inspector recently gained access to a Bristol site. We believe this was an isolated incident, however BSG would advise that all site managers ensure they take time to verify the identification of anyone arriving unannounced and asking for entry.
All HSE Inspectors carry a warrant card that identifies the person appointed, confirms their appointment and describes the law that they are empowered to enforce.
Additional guidance on what to do when an “inspector calls” is attached.
