The Health and Safety Executive today signed an agreement with the National Trust and Swindon Borough Council to work together on health and safety at Trust premises. Senior managers from the three organisations met at the new Trust headquarters in Swindon to launch the agreement.

The agreement sets out the arrangements for a partnership between the National Trust and the two authorities that share responsibility for enforcement of health and safety for the Trust's premises and activities.

The agreement aims to promote consistency in health and safety enforcement amongst those local authorities and HSE regions that have responsibility for premises owned or occupied by the National Trust. It should also encourage the National Trust and its partner organisations to further develop health and safety standards in the heritage, conservation and visitor management sectors.

Phil Scott, Director of the HSE Local Authority Strategic Programme, said: 'We're very pleased to be signing this first such tripartite health and safety agreement today. The agreement provides a framework for co-operation between the two enforcing authorities and should help them deliver their responsibilities more efficiently and effectively. It should also help the National Trust deal more effectively with the risks to visitors, volunteers and staff at its properties.

'The agreement is a practical example of HSE and local government's commitment to developing an effective partnership in how health and safety is enforced, to reduce work-related accidents and ill health.'
