Kirklees College is proud to announce that we have become a member of the British Safety Council.
The British Safety Council, founded in 1957, covers a range of health and safety issues and is dedicated to making sure no-one is injured or made ill through their work and supports members in achieving the very highest Health and Safety standards required by law, to protect members and their staff.
The recent news comes as the college strengthens and demonstrates its commitment to ensuring that Kirklees College is a safer workspace for all that work and choose to study with us.
The college recognises that all of our staff, students and apprentices have the right to work and learn in a safe and healthy environment. We are therefore fully committed to making our centres and facilities a healthy and safe place to teach, work and learn, and are firmly committed to pursuing continuous improvements in health and safety performance beyond the minimum level of achievement with legal requirements.
The announcement demonstrates the importance the college places on the health and safety of all our staff, students, apprentices and other persons who may be affected by our activities. Furthermore, we believe that a strong Health and Safety culture and performance is fundamental to the success of Kirklees College which enables us to create opportunity and change lives for all those that choose to study and work with us.
Rob Harwood, Head of Health and Safety at Kirklees College said:
“The British Safety Council and Kirklees College have a shared vision and we are both truly committed in ensuring that no-one should be injured or made ill through their work and we are passionate about making this vision a reality.
“The British Safety Council is one of the world’s leading independent authorities on health, safety and environmental sustainability and will provide the college with the means for continual improvement and allow us to benchmark ourselves in line with industry and regulatory standards.”
