Health and Safety Executive

The government body that currently regulates safety on Britain's railways. Or is it? Because you also have Her Majesty's Rail Inspectorate which I think comes under the HSE. Does the HSE do some rail regulation of its own, perhaps? I don't know.

Anyway, the HMRI has been around for a long time while the HSE (I think) was set up in 1974. The HSE bagged HMRI in the early 1990s. Again whether this was related to the 1993 Railway Act or not, I am unsure.
