We do not enforce health and safety at all workplaces. Both the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and local authorities such as the City of Lincoln Council enforce health and safety law. In general it is the main activity at a premises that determines the enforcing authority.
The council enforcement officers cover:
Warehouses (retail/wholesale chain)
Hotels and residential care homes
Consumer services in a shop
Animal boarding etc
Child care in non-domestic premises
Places of worship
The HSE in general cover everything else, for example, factories, building sites, farms, fairgrounds, quarries, railways, hospitals, schools and colleges.
