Communicating health and safety information

The health and safety coordinator will be responsible for disseminating information on health and safety issues within their department or service. The department or service's local policy statement should state how staff can assess information such as outcomes of inspections and risk assessments, and local procedures for health, safety and fire.

Health and safety should also be a regular item (at least once per term) on the agenda of team meetings.

The Health and Safety Law poster will be displayed in prominent positions in all work places.

These web pages will allow staff and students to access health and safety information online.

Where appropriate, Staff News will be used to communicate health and safety information in order to keep the School community updated on the preventive and protective measures taken by the School.

Human Resources will ensure that all new employees know where to find copies of the health and safety policy.

Health and Safety is an item in the Flying Start induction briefings.
