Health and Safety Policy

The Trust recognises and accepts its responsibilities for providing a safe and healthy work place and promoting safe working practices for all of its staff, service users and others who may be affected by its activities. It will take all reasonable steps to meet its responsibilities.


The Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974 and Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 require that employers protect all people at work and others not at work including service users and the general public. Employers are required to assess risks and take positive measures to promote health and safety at work and provide employees with a safe place of work, safe equipment, safe systems of work, safe substances and competent fellow workers along with adequate information, instruction, training and supervision.


This Safety Policy sets out the organisational arrangements to enable the Trust and staff to comply with these responsibilities and legal duties imposed by all health and safety legislation. It is supported by a number of additional health and safety policies and standard operating procedures covering a range of topics all of which are applicable to all staff as appropriate to their workplaces and work activities. If you require further information on any of the points or other issues please discuss them with your supervisor/manager or contact one of the people listed for assistance in the contacts section.
