Health and Safety

 The executive committee carries out a yearly health and safety risk assessment on the premises.  All observable risks have been corrected, or have an action plan or have been removed from the hall. 

However, please note that you have a personal and legal responsibility to ensure that you report to the hall Booking Secretary any risks or hazards that you encounter, and/or to take corrective action if this is necessary at the time and is within your control. (For example, you may have to advise your guests that a floor has become slippery and not to enter that area.) 

The stage area has been assessed as medium to high risk and therefore must not be used without prior permission from the Booking Secretary.  In this event, and due to the varied nature of activities carried out on the stage, it will be necessary for you to carry out your own written health and safety risk assessment relevant to the activity and environment that you are creating on the stage.  Copies of this risk assessment may be requested by the Executive Committee.

 A written health and safety risk assessment should include the following information: 

·       What are the hazards?

·       Who might be harmed and how?

·       What action is necessary?

·       How will you put the assessment into action? 

Please note that the stage electrics and theatre lighting are the property of the Broadstone Players and must not be used without prior permission from them.
