OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH &SAFETY ENQUIRES& COMPLAINTS
County Medical Officers of Health provide free assessments and investigations of occupational health and safety issues. Employers and employees can seek advice on how to create a safe workplace or lodge complaints about unsafe working conditions. Please note that you do not need to wait until there is an obvious hazard to lodge a complaint. Your County Medical Officer of Heath (CMOH) can help you avoid potential hazards and prevent workplace accidents and illness.
How do I make an enquiry or complaint?
You can seek advice about creating a safe working environment or make a complaint about unsafe conditions by contacting your County Medical Officer of Health by:
Completing a “Complaint for Investigation” form at a CMOH office.
Sending a letter.
Please follow the link below to contact your County Medical Officer of Health.
How is my complaint handled?
Once the initial complaint is lodged, Public Health Inspectors are despatched to examine the premises. After completion of the examination, the inspectors present a report of their findings and recommendations to the relevant authorities at the premises. Please note that in cases of highly specialised issues, as are common in the energy sector for example, the findings are forwarded to specialised units in the Ministry of Health. Public Health Inspectors have the power to order safety improvements or close workplaces if safety standards are not met.
