What are the maximum HSE Prosecution Penalties?
THE MAXIMUM PENLTY possible under Health and Safety legislation depends on the specific offence. The maximum penalty, for example, for failure to comply with an improvement or prohibition notice is a £20,000 fine and/or a six month period of imprisonment. This illustrates how serious any potential or actual Health and Safety prosecution can be to individuals and companies. See our HSE Prosecutions page for more information.
