Staff, trainers, guest speakers, participants and children have the right to be safe during programmes provided by Rescue4Children. This policy seeks to clarify the health and safety policies and procedures that are in place. Project managers should ensure that they understand and use the policies and procedures as well as ensuring that all other stakeholders are aware of how the policies and procedures affect them. On behalf of the Board of Trustees (the governing body of Rescue4Children), Mrs. Aysen Ipek is the trustee nominated with responsibility for Health and Safety. The responsible member of the management team is the Director.
Child Protection & Safeguarding Policy:
This supplements the Child Protection policy and procedures.
The Risk Assessment Policy and Procedures covers risk assessments from the perspectives of venues, staff, tutors and participants.
Health and Safety Policy for Trainers:
This policy explains the responsibilities of tutors throughout programmes.
Health and Safety Policy for Participants:
This policy explains the responsibilities of learners throughout programmes. It also includes a check to ensure that they have understood the health and safety information they need to know.
The information contained in the health and safety policies and procedures is disseminated as follows:

- Tutors receive a thorough induction when they are sub-contracted, which includes their health and safety responsibilities.
