Health and Safety
We inspect workplaces, investigate accidents and complaints and promotes health and safety in the workplace including welfare of employees and the safeguarding of others, principally the public, who may be exposed to risks from work activities, taking enforcement action when necessary.
We are responsible for enforcing the provisions of the Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974 within East Lindsey for which we have enforcement responsibilities.
The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and our own Safety Inspectors carry out the same role and have the same enforcement powers but are allocated different types of premises to inspect. We carry out routine visits to premises. We may call without warning to undertake these routine inspections or to investigate a complaint.
