Health & Safety Statement


Our Health & Safety Vision:


“We will all have a safe club environment and workplace”


We believe that:


  • No organisation or business objective will take priority over health and safety
  • All incidents are preventable
  • Whilst the Executive Committee have ultimate accountability, we all have responsibility for health and safety
  • All club users and personnel have the responsibility to stop any activity they believe is unsafe or cannot be continued in a safe manner


To achieve this, we will:


  • Maintain and continually improve our Health, Safety and Environmental Management System
  • Proactively identify hazards and unsafe behaviour and take all steps to manage these to as low as reasonably practicable
  • Set targets for improvement and measure, appraise and report on our performance
  • Assess and recognise the health and safety performance of personnel, club users and contractors
  • Consult and actively promote participation with personnel, club users and contractors to ensure they have the training, skills, knowledge and resources to maintain a healthy and safe environment
  • Accurately report and learn from our incidents
  • Support the safe and early return to work of injured employees
  • Design, construct, operate and maintain our assets so that they safeguard people and property
  • Require our contractors to demonstrate the same commitment to achieving excellence in health and safety performance
  • Comply with relevant legislation, regulations, codes of practice and industry standards
