Fee for Intervention Indemnity Guarantee
Fee For Intervention (FFI) is a regime implemented by the HSE on 1st October 2012 in order to aid cost recovery under regulations 23 and 25 of The Health and Safety (Fees) Regulations 2012.
FFI is applicable to all businesses including both Public and Limited companies, Limited Liability Partnerships and Self Employed people.
HSE inspectors charge £124 + VAT per hour for any time they spend investigating and resolving material breaches of Health & Safety law found during an inspection or following an accident.
In the first six months of FFI’s introduction, inspectors issued 5766 invoices across a wide range of industries. Statistics have grown considerably in the ensuing time period.
By utilising Lighthouse Risk Services as your Health & Safety consultants, you have the option to take out a fee reimbursement guarantee against our services.
When implemented, the advice we provide will ensure that your business is fully compliant with the most recent UK Health & Safety regulations. If your business is subsequently investigated by the HSE, and an FFI Invoice is raised, our fee reimbursement guarantee will indemnify you for the costs incurred up to £10,000.
The HSE charges covered by the plan include:
- Basic Fees (Hourly Rate)
- Enforcement Letters
- Enforcement Notices
It is conditional that any customer wishing to take out this guarantee through Lighthouse Risk Services works in accordance with our advice to achieve full Health & Safety compliance.
