star this property answer text <p /> <p>HSE targets industry sectors for proactive inspection according to the framework for health and safety set out in the 2011 Coalition Government publication ‘Good health and safety, good for everyone’, which can be found on-line at: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/good-health-and-safety-good-for-everyone" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/good-health-and-safety-good-for-everyone</a>.</p><p>HSE employs a broad range of interventions to bring about improvements in occupational safety and health within industry sectors. Direct interventions include inspection, investigation and safety case assessment in major hazard sectors. Indirect interventions include the use of information and campaigns, guidance and engagement with intermediaries to raise awareness of duties, risks and to promote compliance across all workplaces in a sector.</p><p>HSE’s choice of intervention strategy for any particular sector takes into account a combination of factors including the actual level of risk within the sector, the industry's injury and ill-health record, its structure and commitment to improving occupational safety and health, and the effectiveness and efficiency of different types of intervention.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p /> <p>Since April 2012 Jobcentre Plus has been supporting claimants potentially affected by the benefit cap to ensure they receive the help they need to move closer to the labour market. Management Information was collected from pre-implementation in May 2012 to November 2013 showing approximately 35,800 people living in potentially capped households had accepted an offer of support. More recent information on the number of people living in capped households who have received employment support and on how many of them have moved into work is not readily available but employment support continues to be available.</p><p>Since the cap was introduced in April 2013, more than 16,000 previously capped households have entered work, as defined by an open Working Tax Credit claim. A suite of evaluation was published on 15 December 2014 finding those affected by the benefit cap were 41 per cent more likely to go into work, as defined by having an open Working Tax Credit claim, than a similar group with benefit entitlement just under the cap level. 38 per cent of those capped said they were doing more to find work.</p>
