Health and Safety

Course Tutor: Delivered by Brian Brookes, BHIB Insurance

Members are ultimately responsible for ensuring that health and safety is being managed properly by their Council. Town and Parish Clerks have a central role in facilitating this management. This training is intended to help Clerks and Councillors understand what this responsibility means in practice and help them to review how, and how well, health and safety is managed by their Council.

A key part of this training will be providing simple model health and safety policies, risk assessments and other key documents. The important components of these will be explained and a number of sources of relevant and reliable information and references will be shared. All examples used during the training will be relevant to Town and Parish Councils.

There will also be an opportunity to discuss the provision of further services for general and specific health and safety matters, as required.
