HSE boss steps down

Head of the Health and Safety Executive Dr Richard Judge has stood down as chief executive following two months of special leave.

Judge officially stepped down from 17 August and had led the organisation since November 2014.

The special leave took effect from 15 June when Dr David Snowball was appointed acting chief executive and accounting officer.

Martin Temple CBE, HSE chair said: ‘On behalf of the Board, I would like to thank Richard for his important contribution to our organisation and to helping to protect workers and the environment, and wish him well in the future.’

A statement from the HSE said Judge had: ‘overseen significant improvements to the way HSE regulates and engages with industry and employer representatives, to deliver on its core purpose of preventing workplace ill health, injury and death.

‘Those achievements have built on HSE’s strong regulatory framework and assurance to tackle workplace harm. Dr Judge also strengthened HSE’s capability.’
