Herefordshire is experiencing significant and widespread flooding. Please avoid any unnecessary travel and do not enter flood water.

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

The council's delegated funding scheme gives schools (whatever their status) the opportunity to enter into a service level agreement with the health and safety team to 'buy back' specialist health and safety advice. We offer a full advisory service to enable all local authority schools and educational establishments to fully comply with the legal requirements.
