The Health and Safety Executive maintains a public database of details of:
- All prosecution cases which resulted in a conviction and crown censures taken by HSE since 1 April 1999
- Details of all enforcement notices issued since 1 April 2001 excluding those under appeal or withdrawn.
If businesses have been prosecuted for Health and Safety breaches by the HSE, the details will be available on the Health and Safety Executives Public Register of Convictions (external link).
Additionally under the Environment and Safety Information Act 1988, Local Authorities are required to maintain a Public Register of all health and safety enforcement notices which were served for issues relating to persons other than just employees. Such notices are required to be kept on the register for three years after being served, even though remedial action may have already taken place and dealt with the problem. In order to view the register a formal request to Carlisle City Council should be made.
