The HSE will commission an evaluation from independent researchers in two phases:

(i) a survey focussing on the distribution, penetration and reception of the guidance within the target audience of directors of corporate bodies and their equivalents in the public and third sectors. This will be undertaken six months after launch, in May 2008.

(ii) a survey designed to assess the extent and nature of change in behaviour of directors of corporate bodies and their equivalents in the public and third sectors. It is planned that this work should be undertaken within 18 months to two years of the launch of the guidance, with a final report published early in 2010.
