Staff information book

As a city council employee you need to be aware of our health and safety arrangements. This short guide has been prepared to make you aware of general health and safety arrangements and how you can play your part in keeping your workplace safe.

It is our policy to take all reasonable steps to ensure the health and safety of all persons working both on council premises and delivering council services. We will ensure that there are adequate health and safety facilities available, and that the relevant safety requirements and codes of practice are known and adhered to at all times.

All employees, however, have a responsibility for safety and if you find anything that you think is unsafe, or may become unsafe, report it to your manager. They can then take action to make it safe.
