Health and safety

Office image

Our objective is to help people living and working in the area to be aware of the hazards to their health and safety and to reduce the likelihood of accidents and dangerous occurrences. 

We are responsible for making sure that Health and Safety regulations and legislation are known and followed by employers and their employees.

To do this we provide a free advice and guidance service, conduct Health and Safety inspections, undertake accident and incident investigations and carry out enforcement action where necessary.

Most of the premises that Stirling Council has enforcement responsibility for receive programmed inspections at varying intervals dependent on the nature of their business and according to the risks inherent in that business. For example, tyre and exhaust fitters and warehouses are inspected much more often than small offices. An alternative enforcement strategy is used for low risk premises.
