Dear Health and Safety Executive,

I would like to request the following information please:

How many breaches of health and safety were made in Norfolk during the 2016/17 period?
Could this please be broken down, as far as possible, into:
- Date
- Location (as specific as you can be would be helpful, but by district is fine)
- What, if any, action was taken - e.g. fine, court appearance and so on
- As much detail about the nature of the incident as possible.

I don't mind how it is presented, though a spreadsheet and by email would be preferable.

Yours faithfully,

Lauren Cope

Health and Safety Executive

Dear Health and Safety Executive,

Thanks for this information. Can I ask why there has been nothing recorded for west Norfolk please? Is that because there were, as far as you know, no breaches, or something to do with how the data is recorded?

Yours faithfully,

Lauren Cope

Hi Lauren

This would be because there were no successfully concluded cases against West Norfolk in the period. Our system is down at the moment, so I cannot check whether there are any open cases. But in any event, information on such cases would be exempt under Section 31 of the Act (Law Enforcement).

Hope this helps.
