Health and safety at work

The council is responsible for promoting good practice to ensure the health and safety of employees and the public in a range of workplaces.

Your safety and your health are important to us at Lambeth Council - we want to ensure you have a safe workplace.

  • Slips, trips or falls cause the majority of accidents at work. Tell your employer if there is a problem. If they don't take action, tell us.
  • One-third of all work-related sickness is caused by stress. If you have a problem, tell your employer. You or your employer can contact us for advice.
  • Employees with special needs, from becoming pregnant to having a disability, should have their needs considered. Talk to us if you're unsure about what to do.
