Who We Are

Health and Safety Authority

The Health and Safety Authority (HSA) is responsible for the administration and enforcement of workplace health and safety law in Ireland, the implementation of a number of EU Regulations/Directives governing chemicals, and accreditation.

Since 31st July 2014, the Irish National Accreditation Board (INAB) which is the national body with responsibility for the accreditation of laboratories, certification bodies and inspection bodies, has been integrated into the HSA.

The main legislation which governs the HSA’s operation is the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Acts 2005 to 2014, as well as the Chemicals Acts 2008 and 2010.
