HEALTH AND SAFETY Under the Health and Safety regulations we are required to exercise our obligations to keep others and ourselves safe from harm. Upon arrival our staff will brief your organiser/point of contact on the day and run through our Health and Safety Forms, which include... evacuation processes and identification of onsite hazards. We will also require your representative to list any hazards they have bought into the premise and advise of the safety needs around this. Your contact person is then responsible for ensuring all your guests/delegates are aware of the Health & Safety Policy, Hazards and Evacuation Processes.
