Health and safety - what we do

We enforce health and safety at work regulations throughout the Runnymede Borough where we are the designated enforcing authority. This includes consumer service industry workplaces such as offices, shops, hotels, restaurants, museums, leisure centres, nurseries and pubs.

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) is responsible for enforcing health and safety law at most other types of premises including any construction site. If unsure, you can check which enforcing authority on the HSE website.

We carry out our duties through

  • inspections of high-risk premises
  • advice and guidance
  • responding to complaints and enquiries
  • investigating accidents and following up statutory notifications
  • raising awareness of important issues and promoting compliance with the law.
