Health and Safety

The service aims to protect the health and safety of the public and employees affected by work place activities. This is through enforcement and education to reduce accidents in the workplace.

The health and safety team undertakes a risk based programme of inspections at a variety of work places in the district to check compliance with  the Health and Safety at Work Act and associated regulations.

It also investigates accidents at work involving employees or members of the public, complaints about health and safety standards as well as giving health and safety advice are also important roles of the team.

Advice on specific health and safety issues can also be obtained from the HSE web site.
