Health & Safety Support for Charities and Not-for Profit Organisations
Across the UK there are over 165,000 charities operating and providing support for a range of causes from childcare to health support services. They are complex businesses often involving both the employment of paid staff and volunteers as well as the running of shops and events for the public.
Under the Health and Safety at Work Act trustees of charities have a duty of care not only for their employees, but also for these volunteers and the general public and that’s why it’s essential that health and safety policies and procedures are rigorous to ensure everyone stays safe. Whether it’s managing the new donations on a shop floor, the cleaning policies for a hospice or the health and safety procedures for a large public fundraiser there are always health and safety considerations.
At Sureteam we have an experienced team of health and safety consultants who can undertake a full audit of your health and safety systems to ensure every area has been covered. We can also provide ongoing consultancy, so whenever you have a query, you can pick up the phone for our thoughts and advice on new or existing policies.
We work with organisations proactively to ensure health and safety measures are preventative, rather than following an accident. We will work closely with your team to generate straightforward, practical solutions that are appropriate for your charity and keep everyone safe and healthy.
