    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.

    On the wrong side of Big Pharma !!! Not out of the question.
    I'd move your family out asap and book yourself in for cosmetic surgery.
