New figures have revealed more than 100 health and safety incidents have been reported at Aberdeen City Council in a three-month period.
A total of 119 incidents were recorded between October to December, a small decrease from the same period in 2017 when 122 reports were made.
Six employees were injured in incidents during this time and reported to the Health and Safety Executive. These all related to slips/trips and falls which prevented the employee from working for seven or more days.
A report into the figures, which will be considered by councillors next week, said: “This is a reduction from nine reportable incidents in the same reporting period last year.”
