Annual Health, Safety and Wellbeing Performance Report 2021/22


The Committee considered the annual report of the Occupational Health and Safety Manage, which provided the health, safety and wellbeing (HSW) performance for 2021/22 (for copy see file of minutes).


Responding to a query regarding civil claim trends, the Occupational Health and Safety Manager advised that analysis information was reported separately and would be provided at a future meeting.


The Occupational Health and Safety Manager responded to a query from Councillor M McGaun relating to near miss reporting. It was confirmed that workplace related accidents, incidents and near misses including incidents traveling during working hours were reported through the accident reporting system. It was noted that members of the public can report any incidents that occur on local roads via Customer Services and the Highways Action Line. The Head of Corporate Finance and Commercial Services added that accidents on roads were also reported to Highways via the insurance process which would identify blackspots in the County and would be addressed by the Highways Team.



That the report be agreed.
