HSE is going through an exciting period of change, as it seeks to increase its commercial income while maintaining its essential role as a highly respected and independent regulator. The Board plays a major role in overseeing this change and continuing to advise ministers on policy implementation relevant to health and safety at work, including the implementation of European Union Directives.

Judith Hackitt, Chair of the Health and Safety Executive said: I am pleased to welcome Sarah Pinch and Martyn Thomas to the HSE Board. The HSE Board is currently driving the agenda to commercialise more of HSE s services and activities, and so on this occasion we sought candidates who could strengthen the Board s commercial and communication skills. Martyn Thomas brings his wealth of experience of commercial activities, including internationally, and most recently of commercialisation from the Health and Safety Laboratory (HSL) Board to the HSE Board. Sarah Pinch has a lot to offer HSE, having overseen successful communications in private, charitable and NHS organisations as they grew in new markets or experienced other significant change.
