Welcome to the Harrogate and District Health and Safety Forum

The Forum is a non-profit making group aiming to improve the health, safety and well-being of people at work. Our membership is made up of practitioners from all types of organisations and industries with an interest in Health and Safety. As a member of the Forum advice is always available.


We’re pleased to be part of Safety Groups UK, the coordinating body for the network of voluntary health and safety groups throughout the UK. Local Safety Groups, supported by their 'umbrella' organisation, Safety Groups UK (SGUK), exist to promote awareness and knowledge about work-related health and safety risks and how to manage them. They do this by bringing a wide range of people together to hear essential messages and to share experience, concerns and solutions.


There are over 70 Local Health and Safety Groups (affiliated to RoSPA) and they are located throughout the UK.

Some common objectives of these Groups include:

  • promoting interest in, awareness of, and the need for accident and ill health prevention

  • providing a network for the dissemination of knowledge

  • fostering a spirit of fellowship and cooperation at a local level in all matters connected with occupational safety and health and working collectively to enhance the protection of people from workplace risks
