The Safety, Health and Chemicals Policy Unit acts as a liaison mechanism between the Department and the Health and Safety Authority, including in the context of the additional responsibilities regarding accreditation regulation in Ireland, assumed by it following the integration of the Irish National Accreditation Board (INAB), into the Health and Safety Authority (HSA) with effect from 31 July 2014.
