Abstract This study was undertaken to identify a systematic approach to the evaluation of inspection effectiveness within the Field Operations Division of the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). Tasks involved a combination of interviews and workshops with HSE staff and a questionnaire addressed to persons responsible for safety and health within enterprises to establish their perception of the objectives and expectations of inspection. These expectations were used to evaluate the potential health and safety performance indicators that had been proposed in the literature to devise a collection of indicators suitable for use in a regulatory context, since there appeared to be no obvious choice of suitable indicators based on previous research.
