Health and Safety Advice from South Glos Council

Health and safety should not be scary or complicated. There are lots of self-help kits and documents available, and you can seek free help from your health and safety team at South Glos Council.
Every business needs someone who is competent in health and safety, a safety policy, a risk assessment, trained and informed staff, and premises need to meet basic workplace standards.
Businesses that are safe tend to be more successful and their staff feel more valued and secure.
