Health and safety

These services are available to Isle of Man Government Departments, Boards and Offices and their employees only.

The main purpose of the Health and Safety section of the Division is to provide a specialist health and safety advisory service to Government departments, boards and offices. This includes providing information, advice and support for managers to assist them in complying with legislative requirements and best practice derived from specialist organisations and comparable industries.


The aims of the Welfare section of the Division are to support Government staff in the protection of their own health and wellbeing and to encourage individuals to recognise and accept responsibility for their own welfare. These aims are achieved by offering professionally trained staff who can provide emotional support, counselling and sign-posting on a wide range of issues.

Health, Safety and Welfare is located within, but operates independently of, the Office of Human Resources.
