The Guernsey Health and Safety Executive

The Health and Safety Executive in Guernsey (HSE) is the regulator for workplace health and safety in Guernsey and Alderney.

We provide advice, inspect workplaces, investigate accidents and incidents at work and secure compliance with the health and safety law through enforcement notices and prosecutions. We also regulate hazardous industries though licences and permits.

This web site is not an authoritative interpretation of Guernsey Health and Safety legislation and is provided for guidance only.
