HSE Publishes Sector Plan for Health and Safety in Utilities

The utilities sector covers electricity generation, distribution and supply, low-pressure domestic and commercial gas, liquefied petroleum gas, water, sewerage and telecommunications industries. Excluding gas, this sector contributes around £57 billion to the economy.

Around 500,000 people work in the sector, with a high proportion in skilled and technical roles. The different industries covered are subject to high levels of political and regulatory scrutiny.

The plan covers the current position, priorities and what HSE will do to help Great Britain work well.
