Introduction to Health and Safety Team
Our primary aim is to help reduce the levels of accidents and occupational ill-health across CYC – for employees and those affected by our work activities (including customers, pupils, contractors etc).
We want to ensure that risks are managed sensibly and proportionately by CYC managers – and our team provides guidance and support across a wide range of H&S issues to CYC employees.
The CYC Safety Management System (SMS) exists to help managers and their teams to achieve these aims. The SMS sets out the minimum expected standard for managers to follow, and contains policy documents, compliance notes (more detailed information on topics ranging from Asbestos to Workplace Transport), forms and tools.
