The Health and Safety Officer presented the Health and Safety Annual Report 2019/20 to the Committee.
Councillor Newton said it was evident a significant amount of work had gone into this report. She said that this was impressive and thanked Officers.
The Head of HR and OD said that this was the first occasion this report had been created and that it was slightly regrettable that no benchmark to review the Council’s performance against other local authority data could be established. More data would be sought to establish this going forward. He thanked the Health and Safety Officer for his work and said that all action points from the Health and Safety audit had now been addressed.
The Chairman said it was disappointing that only seven local authorities had responded to the request for benchmark data.
RESOLVED – that the report be noted.
