Health and Safety

We share the enforcement responsibility for work premises with the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and the allocation of premises is detailed in the schedules of the Health and Safety (Enforcing Authority) Regulations 1998. The legal requirements are principally prescribed by the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and its associated legislation, regulations and codes of practice. 

In these premises we are responsible for:

  • Health and safety inspections and targeted interventions
  • Providing advice and guidance, in addition to responding to service requests
  • Investigating certain categories of accidents and dangerous occurrences
  • Launching campaigns to raise public awareness of important issues
  • Exercising enforcing options in line with our enforcement policy

Health and safety advice is available from the following sources:
