Freedom of Information

The Health and Safety Authority is a public body for the purposes of the Freedom of Information Acts, 1997 and 2003. 

However, it should be noted that under Section 46 of the Act records created or held by the Authority other than records relating to the general administration of the Authority are not covered by the Act.

This result is that the public has a right of access to records concerning the general administration of the Authority but no others.

"A Guide to the Functions and Records of the Health and Safety Authority" has been prepared in accordance with Section 15 of the Freedom of Information Acts, 1997 & 2003.

To accompany the above guide a manual has been prepared under Section 16 of the Freedom of Information Acts, 1997 and 2003. This manual is available here.
