This organisation is firmly committed to a policy enabling all work activities to be carried out safely and with all possible measures taken to remove (or at least reduce) risks to the health, safety and welfare of Shed members, authorised visitors, and anyone else who may be affected by our operations.


We are committed to ensuring we comply with all legal requirements of the Health and Safety Regulations

and other applicable codes of practice as applicable as far as possible.



The Committee will provide and maintain as far as possible:


  • A safe working environment.

  • Safe systems of work.

  • Plant and substances in safe condition.

  • Facilities for the welfare of members.

  • Information, instruction, training and supervision (where necessary and possible) that is reasonably necessary to ensure that each member is safe from injury and risks to health.

  • A commitment to consult and cooperate with members in all matters relating to health and safety in the Men’s Shed.

  • A commitment to continually improve our performance through effective safety management.



Each member has an obligation:-

  • To comply with safe work practices, with the intent of avoiding injury to themselves and others.

  • To work in a way that avoids any damage to equipment, machinery and buildings.

  • To take reasonable care of their own health and safety and the health and safety of others

  • To wear personal protective equipment and clothing where necessary

  • To comply with any direction given by the committee or management in relation to health and safety

  • Not to misuse or interfere with anything provided in the interest of health and safety

  • To report all accidents and incidents immediately, no matter how trivial

  • To report all known or observed hazards to the committee or management



We seek the cooperation of all members and visitors. We encourage suggestions in realising our health and safety objectives to create a safe environment with a zero accident rate.
