Health and Safety is everybody's responsibility and we must all be continuously aware of our own safety and the safety of others in everything we do. The management of health, safety and welfare and the effective control of workplace hazards is an integral part of every manager’s job but everyone has a part to play in ensuring the health, safety and wellbeing of employees and the community.

Bath & North East Somerset has a good health and safety record. With continued best practice, sound health and safety management and cooperation we can maintain that good reputation. Information on the Bath & North East Somerset Council public website is available for all.

Information for Parks & Green Spaces Maintenance Staff

There are Health & Safety documents which are of more interest and relevance to staff than members of the public; these are available from this page so that all our staff can access the information more easily, from external computers as well as at work.  Members of the public are also welcome to access this information.
