Health and safety at work

Enforcement responsiblilities

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) provide a wealth of information and advise on how to manage health and safety in the workplace. They also have enforcement responsibility for businesses such as factories, transport, farms etc.

Local Authorities, such as HBC, have enforcement responsibilities for businesses such as shops and offices. If a business has a door onto the high street that you can enter as a member of the public then the Council is likely to have the enforcement responsibility for that business.
