The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and Leeds City Council (LCC) are working together to carry out a targeted inspection campaign of businesses throughout the Leeds area.
From November, Inspectors from the HSE and LCC will be undertaking a programme of health and safety inspections aimed at raising awareness and improving standards of health and safety in businesses throughout the area.
Inspectors will provide employers with advice and information wherever possible. However, where employers are found not to be complying with the law then appropriate action will be taken, which may involve the service of Improvement and/or Prohibition Notices and in some cases, where serious breaches are identified, action through the courts may be necessary.
In view of this impending campaign, LK Assure would strongly urge all employers in the area to review their current safety management systems, and where they have concerns or queries, to contact our consultants on the advice line.
