Help needed please

I am a member of a Masonic Lodge in the Twickenham area.

I have been asked to quote, or obtain a quote to assist in the management of the clubs H&S needs.

I have two problems, firstly i am involved in the construction industry (and currently very busy) and secondly i have never been involved in the leisure industry so i would prefer to call on the experience of another practitioner.

I also live about 100 miles away in Somerset.

I would be keen to be part (observation only) of the process for the experience.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Sounds to me like you don't want to do it - in which case respectfully decline.

However, if you do want to do it, it could be good CPD to gen up on areas that you are not currently au fait with.

For leisure there are numerous elemnets to consider with regard occupational health and safety, both for the employee and the members of the public that use the facilities.  If we are to break it down, you have the regulatory requirements of :

Fire Safety (Risk Assessment / Emergency Planning / Lighting / Alarm / Fire Detection / Fire Fighting Equipment (including fixed installations potentially)

Electricity (Fixed Wiring / Portable Appliances)

Legionella (Risk Assessments - potentially)

Food Safety (potentially?) - e.g. HACCP

PUWER - work equipment (Periodic Maintenance etc.)

CoSHH - hazardous substances (used in jacuzzi/hot tubs - if those are faciilties you have; insecticides for grounds etc.? - and subsequent training)

I could go on, and there is more..... but don't want to frighten you.
