Health and Safety and Insurance

Being aware of health and safety doesn’t mean stopping people from having fun. It’s just a matter of thinking about risks and taking sensible steps to avoid them. This section contains information to help your group develop risk assessments, policies and insurance provision to match your activities.

Click on the Services tab above for details of insurance providers and other people who can help with health and safety issues.
