Health and Safety (Corporate information)
Fife Council is fully committed to achieving high standards of health and safety compliance and in protecting the health, safety and welfare of our staff and those we serve. To achieve this, robust health and safety management arrangements, procedures and practices need to be fully embedded in every Service as an integral part of management practice and day-to-day service delivery.
Excellence in health and safety is a responsibility for all Council employees.
The information provided in these pages is relevant to all employees. Note that a limited number of our Corporate Health and Safety Subject Information pages (construction/CDM, asbestos management, managing contractors and work at height guidance) are available via fifedirect to allow ready access to contractors, consultants and other stakeholders.
The information contained in these pages provides key policy information, guidance and support in this vital area. Senior Managers identified in the Council's Health and Safety Management Framework with specific responsibilities for health and safety should take the time to familiarise themselves with these pages.
