Important guidance on volunteers and sub-contractors

Following a breach of Health & Safety laws which led to a volunteer fatality, an anglers association in the UK has been ordered to pay a £60,000*. An investigation revealed that a documented risk assessment had not been carried.

To prevent potentially fatalistic accidents and costly penalties that can also result in reputational damage, your risk assessments and Health & Safety policies need to be up to scratch and effectively communicated with all appropriate stakeholders – including volunteers, casual staff and sub-contractors.

The experts of FEA Associate Member, Citation, have put together two essential guides to help you and everyone involved in your business safe:
