Charities and Not For Profit Organisations

Charities and not for profit organisations owe a duty of care to protect the health, safety and wellbeing of their paid employees, volunteers and anyone who may be affected by their activities. Whether the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 applies to the activities of a charity is largely dependant on the charities structure, however in all cases trustees must ensure that they look after their people and members of the public. This means they can uphold the great reputation of their charity, and avoid potential legal actions for health and safety breaches.

Understanding your duties and ensuring your charity is fully compliant when it comes to health and safety can be challenging. This is where DanumBS can help!

DanumBS can help to you to:

  • develop your Health and Safety Policy and the arrangements needed to put the policy into practise
  • conduct risk assessments and define safe systems of work
  • ensure emergency plans are in place
  • support you in the event of an accident

In addition, you can get access to a health and safety consultant to support you in protecting your people whenever you need it.

DanumBS can work with charities on defined packages of work, or on an ongoing basis by subscribing to our Safe Charity Solution.

DanumBS offers preferential rates to charities and not-for-profit organisations, meaning that your trustees can be assured of value for the charities donors and beneficiaries.
