The Corporate Health and Safety Team are appointed by Cumbria County Council to provide competent advice and support to all Council Directorates and Local Authority Schools.  Safety Advisors work Countywide and can be contacted by telephone 01228 221616 and via email

Each year we produce an Annual Health and Safety Report. This contains data on the annual outcomes of accidents and ill health, key performance indicators and an indication of our priorities for the coming year forming part of our programme for continual improvement.
