    Default HSE Question

    After a bit of advice... I work for a massive pharmaceutical company and last week we had a routine visit from the HSE. Anyway, I was asked to speak to them and I was asked if I had any safety concerns. I gave an honest answer and was thanked for my honesty and sent on my way. The issues I raised are common knowledge and have been raised numerous times. Anyway, today I've got a letter, recorded delivery, asking me to attend a meeting with HR to discuss comments made to the HSE. Is this even legal? I was under the impression that you are protected in such circumstances? I haven't lied and the issues are common knowledge. I know I'm not going to be popular (among management anyway) but I'm not too fussed about that.

    Thanks

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] which in turn links to [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] seems to imply you are safe.
    Couldnt it have been done confidentially ??


    Edit:

    Some good info [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]too.

    Perhaps you're reading the situation wrong.

    Maybe the HSE has passed comment that several employess have mentioned the issues you had, are you in a position to offer a solution to the problems?

    Wouldnt have thought that was the case if they are summoning him via recorded delivery imho

    Have they offered you the chance to be accompanied by a Union representative or other witness? If not, then it's very doubtful it's any form of disciplinary hearing.

    Thanks everyone. I think it's an initial fact finding investigation although it would appear that it's common knowledge that I'm the 'whistleblower' so to speak.
