  • to make arrangements for ensuring, so far as is reasonably practicable, safety and absence of risks to health in connection with use, handling, storage and transport of articles and substances;
  • to provide such information, instruction, training and supervision as is necessary to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health and safety at work of its employees;
  • so far as is reasonably practicable as regards any place or work under the Museum’s control to maintain it in a condition that is safe and without risk to health and to provide and maintain means of access to and exit from it that are safe and without such risks;
  • to provide and maintain a working environment that is, so far as is reasonably practicable, safe, without risks to health, and adequate as regards facilities and arrangements for their welfare at work;
  • to provide such protective equipment as is necessary to ensure, as far as is reasonably practicable, the health and safety at work of its staff;
  • to encourage staff to set a high standard of safety by personal example and to accept a reasonable level of responsibility for the health and safety of themselves and their colleagues;
  • the Health and Safety Group is responsible through its Chairman for ensuring the
    • implementation of the Museum’s safety policy and for providing advice on all matters relating to safety in the Museum;
    • to encourage staff to undertake recognised training in First Aid. In addition, regular training and refresher courses in First Aid are arranged and these are open to all members of staff;
    • further to the above, the Museum provides relevant staff training and through regular reviews has an ongoing commitment to identifying and satisfying training needs as and when they arise;
    • to promote a healthy lifestyle with its staff.

Any questions or concerns regarding Health & Safety at Work should be brought to the attention of your line manager. If it is a potential hazard or problem that can be solved immediately then this should be done. If however you have a more general issue you wish to raise then make sure your line manager brings it to the attention of the Health and Safety Policy Group.
