Health and Safety Policy Statement

The Chair and Board of Trustees of the Kilbryde Hospice are fully committed to ensuring, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health, the safety and welfare of its employees and stakeholders. We fully accept our responsibility for our employees, volunteers, visitors, contractors, service users and other persons who may be affected by our activities. We are committed to achieving health and safety excellence in all our operations, and will take necessary steps to ensure that the requirements of the Health & Safety at Work etc. Act 1974, and other relevant statutory duties are met at all times.

Our vision is to protect our colleagues, stakeholders and the environment and maintain an organisation that keeps everyone safe every day.

We believe in a culture that encapsulates health and safety and underpins our entire business activity with the objective of engendering a continuous improvement environment. Our systems provide effective health and safety planning mechanisms underpinned by appropriate risk assessment, designed to establish and maintain a safe place of work and of care for all our service users and stakeholders.

All colleagues will be given such information, instruction and training as is necessary to enable the safe performance of work activities. Arrangements will be established and maintained to enable colleagues to raise issues relating to fire safety.

The successful implementation of this policy will require total commitment from all levels of Kilbryde Hospice. Each individual has a legal obligation to take reasonable care for their own health and safety of other people who may be affected by their acts or omissions.

This policy will be reviewed and, if necessary, revised in the light of legislative or organisational changes. In any case the policy will be received annually to monitor that our objectives are achieved.
