What are the functions of the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) in connection with ships, and where does it exercise them?

HSE enforces the Health and Safety at Work, etc. Act 1974 (HASAW) and subordinate legislation in all premises in Great Britain (i. e. England, Scotland and Wales) and on offshore installations on the UK Continental Shelf, to which the legislation is extended. (The COSHH Regulations, which HSE formerly enforced on UK ships other than sea-going ships, have now been disapplied to ships: see below. ) HSE website: www. hse. gov. uk
