Dr Richard Judge leaves his position as head of the organization after nearly four years in charge
DR Richard Judge has stepped down as chief executive of the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), having led the organization since November 2014.
In a press announcement issued on Monday, the HSE said Dr Judge (pictured) left his post on Friday 17 August having 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.
Martin Temple CBE, chair of HSE, commented: ‘On behalf of the board, I would like to thank Richard for his important contribution to our organization and to helping to protect workers and the environment, and wish him well in the future.’
Dr David Snowball, a member of the HSE management board, will continue as acting chief executive until further notice.
