Health & Safety at Work

 
South Staffordshire Councils Environmental Health and Licensing Team, are responsible for the
enforcement of health and safety standards at over 1500 commercial premises throughout South Staffordshire. These include premises used for warehousing, retail, offices, sporting and leisure
activities, hotels, catering, residential care accommodation and other consumer services.
 
It is a legal duty of all employers to ensure that the health, safety and welfare of employees, and
also for others who may be affected by their operations (e.g. customers, clients etc) is protected
as far as possible. These responsibilities include providing a safe place of work and ensuring that
working practices are safe; including having equipment and tools that are safe to use and well
maintained; providing information regarding materials used on the premises and ensuring that 
employees are trained in the safe use of such materials and equipment.
 
Unannounced inspections of businesses are normally undertaken throughout the year and in
accordance with a risk based programme. Our officers also investigate accidents and complaints
received from employees or members of the public which may require a visit to the premises.
 
If you are concerned about health and safety issues at your workplace, or at premises you have
visited, please contact the Food and Safety Team.
 
If you require any further information regarding our Occupational Health and Safety Services or
wish to report a problem where you work please do so on line using the Enquiry form.
