Health and Safety in the Workplace
Health and safety legislation is enforced by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) or one of the over 380 local authorities depending on the main activity carried out at any particular premises. In general Local Authorities are the main enforcing authority for retail, wholesale distribution and warehousing, hotel and catering premises, offices, and the consumer/leisure industries.

For a wide range of information and guidance relating to Health and Safety at Work visit the HSE website. Alternatively you can contact us directly.
If you have suffered an incident at work that is RIDDOR reportable, it is a duty of your employer to inform the HSE through the RIDDOR reporting process. If your accident is to be investigated by this department, we will contact you after we have received the RIDDOR report.
