Health and safety in the workplace
Our Food and Safety Group is responsible for health and safety in:
- guest houses
- catering services
- care homes
The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) is responsible for:
- building sites
Our environmental health (health and safety) officers inspect workplaces to make sure they are obeying the law.
They investigate accidents and complaints.
Their main aim is to help employers understand the importance of health and safety, and to inform them of the action they must take.
Enforcement is only necessary as a last resort.
