Food and Health and Safety Performance

The Food and Safety Team routinely inspect all food businesses and certain other businesses for health and safety in the Wealden area.
We also deal a wide range of complaints and service requests, including giving advice to new businesses.
We also investigate accidents in the workplace, mainly those that cause serious injury or health problems to staff or members of the public.
