Health and safety team

The health and safety team provides general advice and guidance to the council on health, safety and wellbeing matters. You can also find more information on the Health and Safety Executive Education website and on the Government's health and safety advice for schools webpage

In line with the council's delegated funding scheme, schools (whatever their status) can 'buy back' specialist health and safety advice by entering into a service level agreement with the health and safety team. We offer a comprehensive advisory service to enable all local authority schools and educational establishments to fully comply with the legislative requirements.
