About us


The Harrogate and District Health and Safety Forum is a non-profit making organisation formed in 2002 as part of an initiative to support local businesses. It is run by representatives from local companies and community organisations working in partnership with officers from Harrogate Borough Council and the Health & Safety Executive (HSE). We consider both national and local health & safety priorities and work to promote good Health & Safety practice.


We look to improve the health, safety and well-being of people at work by assessing and responding to local training needs by delivering information through three forum events each year. These events are a great way to network with other like-minded businesses, find out how to deal with common Health & Safety issues and to keep up-to-date with changes in legislation. Our events have knowledgeable speakers, with lots of relevant and useful information to pass on.


Over the years our remit has grown and developed, and our events now draw attendance not just from the Harrogate district but from across Yorkshire (and beyond).


Our highly experienced management team and presenters give their time freely to organise a programme of informative events, but to enable us to do this we have to make a small charge to those attending.  This is to cover overheads such as venue hire, however on-site parking is free.


The management team consists of a maximum of 20 people; the officials are appointed annually.


If you would like to receive information about forthcoming events and would like to be added to our mailing list please join the group.

On 25 May 2018 The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into effect in the EU and across the United Kingdom. Consequently we are updating our information in order to comply with the requirements of these regulations.
