In accordance with the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005, the Management of SPORTSCO are committed to the health and safety of its staff and customers and to carrying out its work in a safe and healthy manner, relying on the commitment and co-operation of its employees. The overall responsibility for Safety in SPORTSCO rests with me, Lorna Brady, General Manager, SPORTSCO. I act through my staff who are obliged to co-operate with Management, in particular by taking care of their own safety and the safety of others who use the facilities in Sportsco and who may be affected by their actions or omissions.
This document incorporates the Normal Operating Procedures (NOP), accident reporting procedure, Emergency Action Plan (EAP) and Fire Procedure. Also included are the SPORTSCO staff structure and a building plan outlining the various facilities at South Lotts Road. It is necessary and expected that every staff member reads and understands this document in order to deliver consistent quality service to our members. Safety, Standards and Service are the three critical factors required by SPORTSCO to retain its position as a leading leisure facility.
We will review this safety statement annually and we will consult with staff as part of this process. We will also carry out structured risk assessments each quarter as part of our safety policy. Thank you to all the staff for their input in to this document.
