Please can you supply me with a list of all the States of Jersey pan-island services for both Jersey and Guernsey?
The Health and Safety at Work Inspectorate in Jersey and the Health and Safety Executive in Guernsey (the Island’s occupational health and safety regulatory agencies) have a formal agreement, in the form of a signed Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), to provide mutual assistance in any material way possible, subject to availability of suitable staff, workload and priorities. This extends, but is not exhaustive, to operational and / or technical support. Examples where the MOU has been applied include a Jersey based Inspector with specialist competence in inspection of licensed asbestos work undertaking such work in Guernsey to support a prosecution in the Royal Court of Guernsey, joint working in the development of authoritative and legal guidance to support duty holders in each Island, a Guernsey Inspector carrying out inspections of quarries across both Islands in line with a UK national inspection programme
States of Jersey Police
The States of Jersey Police have a contract to supply the States of Guernsey Police with services surrounding Hi-Tech crime. This is not a ‘pan-Island service’ as such but demonstrates collaboration across the Islands.
