Managing healthy and safety shouldn’t be a barrier to managing your organisation effectively, it shouldn’t be complicated, costly or time consuming.
To avoid personal injury, you need to take reasonable steps to prevent accidents or harm to the management committee members, volunteers, clients and members of the public. If your group employs staff you must comply with health and safety legislation, including providing all staff with basic information about their role in complying with health and safety law.
There are a number of legislation requirements to follow to ensure your organisation complies with the law and the approach you take should be relevant to the size and nature of your organisation.
