East London Beauty Academy understands that Health and Safety plays a fundamental part of life and therefore is adamant that not only safe standards are maintained at the Academy but ensure that these standards are maintained in accordance with the relevant Health and Safety Acts and regulations.
A health and safety policy is a commitment to planning and managing health and safety at work and is the key to achieving acceptable standards and preventing accidents and instances of work-related ill health.
Overall responsibility for health and safety rests with the employer but many day-to-day tasks may be delegated. Our policy shows how these tasks are allocated and states exactly who is responsible for different things such as first aid, health and safety and fire risk assessments and investigating accidents. Our Health and Safety Policy includes the following:
- Policy statement
- Employer's and employee’s responsibilities
- Risk assessments
- Safe equipment use
- Hazardous substances
- Accidents, first aid and emergency procedures
All relevant information is provided in the the East London Beauty Academy Student Handbook.
