Health, Safety & Wellbeing
It is important we are both safe and practical when it comes to our policies around health, safety and wellbeing. We know parents are busy, so our policies – whilst grounded in safety – also consider life’s practicalities.
Safety and wellbeing is everyone’s responsibility and therefore each employee is required to behave and perform their duties to ensure a positive, safe and healthy culture for all.
We believe that every team member has a responsibility to do more than just follow the relevant legislation. Instead, we work together to create and maintain a safe work environment for our colleagues and, importantly, the children in our care.
Specifically, our teams show their commitment to health, safety and wellbeing in the following ways:
- Taking responsibility for their own safety and wellbeing by following appropriate procedures and practices
- Proactively identifying hazards, assessing risk and implementing appropriate measures to ensure a safe environment for all
- Effectively raising and consulting on safety or wellbeing concerns
- Adhering to injury management procedures.
