NFIT inspectors are located throughout GB and respond to accidents and incidents in their local area. They can also call on support from a range of Specialist Inspectors if necessary. The team also targets proactive inspection of fairground rides with known problems and other areas of higher risk; for the coming year’s inspection plan, 19/20, inflatable devices are identified within it as an area of work.</p><p> </p><p>Online guidance freely available from HSE website has recently been revised and the content of this made known to industry dutyholders via their trade bodies.
