    Health and safety
     

    It's important we take all reasonable steps to protect the health and well-being of ourselves, our colleagues, our service users and anyone affected by our activities.

    We have a comprehensive Health and Safety Manual as a guide to the management and implementation of health and safety systems.

    Loretto have a named Health and Safety Coordinator and a Staff Health and Safety Committee which provides the organisation with procedures that are effective, regularly reviewed, and form a framework in which we can reduce the health and safety risks to staff and other stakeholders.

    Loretto has been involved with Healthy Working Lives Award Scheme for many years and have established two specific groups to lead and promote the strategy within the organisation:

    These groups, alongside dedicated Human Resources Staff and Line Managers, are committed to identifying and providing solutions to the organisation's needs in relation to Safety, Health and Wellbeing.

    The remit and responsibilities of both groups, and all employees are outlined within the current Health and Safety Manual.
