COVID-19: Report a Health and Safety at Work Concern
Reporting health and safety concerns in the workplace in the Mendip area.
The law requires employers and the self-employed to conduct their business in such a way as to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, that persons are not exposed to risks to their health and safety. This includes measures to prevent the spread of infectious diseases including Covid-19.
If you consider that your employer (or any business undertaking's) work activity is putting your safety at risk, with respect to COVID-19 then you should raise your concerns with that employer or person immediately. If no improvement is made at the earliest opportunity, it is important that the matter is reported promptly to the relevant enforcing authority.
You can find more information on the Health and Safety Executive's Coronavirus web pages.
The enforcement of health and safety law is split between the Council and the Health and Safety Executive, the table below indicates who is responsible for each type of business.
