The new Sentencing Guidelines one year on: Their impact on the Construction industry

The conviction data available on HSE’s web site has been analysed to assess the impact of the first year of the new Sentencing Guidelines on organisations and individuals working in the construction industry who have been convicted of breaches of health and safety legislation. Comparisons have been made with the last year of the old Guidelines.


These analyses showed that the median fine per construction organisation increased from £13.4k under the old Sentencing Guidelines to £20k under the new Guidelines. The largest fine imposed on a construction organisation increased from £1m to £2.6m.

The proportion of individuals receiving prison or suspended prison sentences rose from around 1 in 3 (31%) to nearly 1 in 2 (47%) in the first year of the new Sentencing Guidelines. The proportion of individuals receiving fines reduced from 57% to 40% with the new Sentencing Guidelines.

How to engage boards on health, safety and risk issues

This article suggests a range of ways to engage boards on health, safety and risk issues.

Our suggestions are a combination of 'nudges' and 'shoves'. They recognise the potential barriers to engagement that we identified in an earlier article, and are aimed at addressing those barriers.
