Resources for Existing Volunteers
The Trust is committed to providing healthy and safe conditions for our volunteers when carrying out their tasks. We do this by carrying out risk assessments and providing volunteers with the information, training and equipment they need to remain safe whilst carrying out their role.
To help us ensure our sites are safe, volunteers are reminded that they have a duty of care for themselves and also others who may be affected by their actions on sites. As part of this, we provide volunteers with emergency procedures for each site which can be found below, as well as an incident reporting form to report any accident, incident or near miss.
