The Circumstances Under Which A Health And Safety Inspector May Serve A Improvement Notice & Prohibition Notice 

Possible costs such as those associated with the accidents are:

  • Improvement Notice – To serve an improvement notice, an inspector must be of the opinion that there is a breach of relevant statutory provisions, or that there has been a breach that is likely to be continued or repeated.



  • A relevant example would be a floor that has been poorly maintained in contravention of the requirements of the Workplace (Health, Safety, and Welfare) Regulations 1992.
  • Prohibition Notice – For a prohibition notice to be served, an inspector must be of the opinion that there is, or is likely to be, a risk of serious personal injury.
  • A relevant example would be a scaffold that has been poorly constructed and is therefore in an unsafe condition.
