Fylde Coast YMCA now offer a Health and Safety Management System designed for businesses of any size or complexity.
How will we do this?
We will come and conduct an organisational appraisal visit to assess the current policy, procedures and practices in your organisation. We will also carry out a health and safety inspection to determine if there are any risks or hazards which are unidentified and which may need incorporating into the current systems.
This will form the basis for the Health and Safety Management System, tailored for each individual company or organisation.
On this visit we will present the bespoke Health and Safety Manual incorporating your individual policies and procedures, plus any additions required, to the team who will be responsible for implementing the new system.
We will also ensure that the team responsible understand the system, its implications and how it will be used in the organisation.
The manual will include legal requirements, monitoring procedures, assessment forms and advice sheets.
We can, at this point, discuss any training required to ensure members of the team and any other staff are suitably qualified to ensure that everyone takes ownership of the system, recognises their role in minimising risk and understands the ongoing health and safety culture within the organisation.
After the second visit, we can offer the choice of either bi-monthly, 6 monthly or an annual visit to ensure compliance with the management system and to ensure that each individual fully understands their role within the system and are competent to carry it out.
We will also include:
- An electronic version of the manual and associated forms
- Free advice and access to an email advice service
Any change to legislation will be communicated and the management system amended accordingly, including any training or change in practice.

Our successful certification is testament to our obligation and commitment to be responsible for the health and safety of our employees, our customers and our communities.
