Work life balance is incredible!
Work life balance is incredible- flexi time means you get all overtime back. Management is really supportive and honest. A fantastic place to work! The only downside is the salary
Band 4 Inspector in Liverpool

Poor management
Poor management throughout HSE. Lack of support when new to the role. Close ranks when issues reported. The job itself is difficult but interesting. Made some good colleagues
Technical Support Engineer in Buxton

poor ineffective management
there is no progression/promotion from one band to the next, to progress one has to apply to any suitable vacancies that are published. Your previous performance is not used as a measure during the recruitment process.... Also there is no incremental pay rises within the various bands... performance us not rewarded.
Specialist Occupational Health Inspector in Based in Birmingham England but I'm required to go to all parts of Britain.

Productive, challenging, interesting and rewarding work
There is no typical day at work in my role as a Specialist Occupational Health Inspector. It is both varied and diverse and includes attending Court to provide Expert Opinion on criminal cases involving occupational ill health. I am often called on to provide specialist support to my general Inspector colleagues on occupational ill-health issues across a wide range of industries. There is a culture of mutual support between colleagues and a willingness to share information when called upon to do so. My role is very rewarding and diverse, with no two days the same. For instance, I am also responsible for my own investigations, one of which led to a successful prosecution against a company that failed to control exposure to vibrating equipment, thereby exposing its employees to ill health. This has been the most challenging part of my role to date. As a nurse, it is also very rewarding to work with employers and their employees in order to mitigate the risk of developing an occupational related disease by ensuring that the right control measures are in place. The nature of my role also requires me to complete the Regulatory Training Programme. This programme is underwritten by NEBOSH and required me to successfully complete the course. It included a year long theory and practical training and I am very proud of the fact that I achieved an excellent grade in the Legal Examination component of the course.
