The law requires employers and the self-employed to conduct their business in such a way as to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, that persons are not exposed to risks to their health and safety. This includes providing essential welfare facilities for employees.
If you consider that your employer (or someone else's) work activity is putting your safety at risk or damaging your health, then you should raise your concerns with that employer or person. If no improvement is made and the problem continues, then you can report your complaint to the relevant enforcing authority.
The enforcement of health and safety law is split between the Council and the Health and Safety Executive, the following table indicates who is responsible for each type of business.
|Telford & Wrekin Council||Health and Safety Executive|
|Tyre and exhaust centres||Dentists|
|Consumer services (for example, launderettes)||Doctors surgeries|
|Churches||Schools and universities|
|Beauty parlours||Dry cleaners|
|Mines and quarries|
|Council owned premises|
