HSE warns of compliance scam

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has urged businesses across Britain to ignore all correspondence from a firm calling itself the "Health and Safety Registration Enforcement Division".
This bogus company has contacted firms across England for payment in order to achieve compliance with the law.
The requests, sent from a Bradford address and quoting £199 for registration if "compliant" or £249 if "non-compliant", should be reported to HSE or to the police.
HSE deputy directory general (operations) Justin McCracken, said: "The Health and Safety Registration Enforcement Division is not connected to HSE and is not an official body.
"HSE would never write indiscriminately to firms seeking advance payment for services."
