Health Matters

Health Promotion

The Council’s aim is to promote better health for all people living or working in the district.

We do this by:

Remaining as a key partner for the Safety in Action project which teaches primary school children on how to deal with emergency and dangerous situations.  Approximately 1200 children attend the project each year from local schools.  A number of different agencies work together to put on the event. This year, Safety In Action is being co-ordinated by East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service.

The Equipment Scheme is now co-ordinated by East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service.

Healthy Workplaces

The law expects employers to ensure that they take steps to safeguard the health, safety and welfare of their employees and also protect the public from accidents, injuries or other harm arising from their work activities.
