Personal Safety Guidance for Councillors

This guidance will help Councillors manage their personal safety generally and when in situations that bring them into contact with the public. Please click here for the new revised version.

 There are two areas covered by this guidance:

·         general health and safety; and

·         managing risks when working in the community.


 The Local Government Association councillor workbook Health and Safety in the Council is   recommended reading. It is concise but wide-ranging and touches upon personal safety and details how decision making may influence risk areas.
