Diversity and Inclusion statement
We’re committed to the principles of diversity and equality: both as an employer, and as Great Britain’s Health and Safety regulator. In accordance with the Equality Act 2010, we have drafted specific and measurable targets that we work towards. We:
- eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment and victimisation
- promote equality of opportunity between people who share a ‘protected characteristic’ (such as age, disability or race) and those who do not
- foster good relations between people who share a protected characteristic.
Our diverse backgrounds, experience and talents are critical in securing our success as a regulator. We make every effort to ensure that our people practices reflect the true value of every individual, and that we continually foster an open and inclusive workplace.
We provide an exciting, supportive and flexible working environment, and are committed to helping our people meet their full potential. HSE is an inclusive employer and offers equal opportunities to all regardless of an individual’s age, disability, gender identity, marriage or civil partnership status, pregnancy or maternity, race, religion or belief, sex and sexual orientation.
We are a Disability Confident Employer who is committed to the recruitment, employment, retention and development of disabled people. We will offer candidates who declare that they have a disability and who meet the essential criteria for the job an interview.
We’re committed to removing barriers that might restrict people and proactively work towards positive change.
