Resources for work party leaders
The sites we work on and the activities we undertake potentially pose health and safety risks to our staff and volunteers.
The Trust has a responsibility to help volunteers understand and access our Health and Safety policy and guidance but volunteers are also responsible for acting within it. Please use this form to record your work party's volunteer hours.
Please click on the links below to view the risk assessments and take time to read the document(s) which are relevant to you. All up-to-date versions were added in June 2016.
