Health and safety for businesses

Under the Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974 and associated regulations all employers have a duty to make sure that their workplaces are safe for their employees and members of the public.

What we do:

  • inspect workplaces to ensure that they are safe and that employers are complying with the law
  • investigate complaints
  • investigate some reportable accidents and dangerous occurrences
  • we can provide businesses, employees and members of the public with advice and information, or point you to relevant guidance
  • promote awareness and knowledge through specific projects
  • work in partnership with other relevant organisations like the Health and Safety Executive and other local authorities.
