For Immediate Release

CCA Research shows that over half of all complaints (7 out of 12) to the Parliamentary Ombudsman concerning the conduct of the HSE since 1990 - which have resulted in a published report - were either upheld or partially upheld.

These reports - which are available on the CCA website for the very first time - include complaints about HSE's failure to investigate injuries and failures to undertake adequate investigations into workplace deaths.

Five of these reports concerned allegations of an inadequate investigation. Four of these were "partially upheld".
Five concerned allegations of inappropriate refusal to provide information. Only one of these was partially upheld, and four were not upheld
One concerned alleged inappropriate advice which was upheld
One concerned alleged mishandling of a complaint, which was partially upheld
