Risk Management – Health & Safety and Compliance April 20th at 10am – Online
Town and Parish Councils, as corporate decision-making bodies, need to build considerations of risk management and compliance into their day-to-day decision making, their structures and their operations. Taking these issues seriously ensures that the Council is a robust, reliable and accountable body which members of the public can trust and rely upon. Councils with large property portfolios and a broad range of functions must be particularly aware of their obligations to staff, public, volunteers, contractors and each other.
This 90 minute online session covers key areas of health and safety and compliance that are particularly relevant to the sector such as tree management; play area inspections; building inspections; managing volunteers; managing fire and security risks; insurance; data protection and freedom of information. It offers a structured approach to the risk assessment process for Town and Parish Councils covering the importance of insurance and mitigation measures and how to evidence that process with case studies to illustrate good practice and bad practice.
