We aim to protect the health and safety of the public and employees - through a mix of enforcement and education to reduce accidents.

We have 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.

We also investigate 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.

If you have concerns about health and safety within your workplace or another work premises that you have visited then please get in touch.
