- To set a framework for local authorities as employers, service providers and procurers of goods and services to play their part in delivery of the strategic goals for health and safety in GB
- To target attention on the relevant national, regional and local priorities
- Local authorities are recognised as exemplars in health, safety and wellbeing.
This Strategy Delivery Framework is a mechanism for local authorities as employers, service providers and procurers of goods and services, to contribute to delivery of the 'Strategy for the health and safety of Great Britain: be part of the solution'.
It provides an interpretation of what the GB health and safety strategy means for local government in England and Wales. It also offers some simple tools to help local authorities meet national health and safety goals as well as identifying their own local and regional priorities. It promotes the sharing of good practice on health and safety management between authorities.
Councils can use the framework as a means of recording and demonstrating their contribution as duty holders to the health and safety strategy for Great Britain.
