Health and safety
At Allied Healthcare we care about our people, we care about the people who rely on us, and we care about the environment in which they live and work. The safety of our employees, customers and third parties is paramount and we believe that everyone has the right to work in a safe and healthy workplace.
We will meet our legal obligations in the Health and Safety at Work Act, the Environmental Protection Act and other related legislation, and through good practice we strive to exceed minimum standards.
The Board has overall responsibility for ensuring that we maintain high standards of health, safety and environmental management and a strong clinical leadership is provided by our Medical Director and Head of Risk, who are supported by a Health and Safety Manager and Branch Audit Team.
We identify and assess risks across the whole business and implement measures to reduce and take actions for further improvements. We strive to prevent all health, safety and environment incidents and have systems in place for reporting and investigating incidents to share the learning and help prevent similar incidents.
Allied Healthcare is CHAS Accredited. The accreditation process includes a full assessment of our health and safety arrangements throughout the business to ensure that we are compliant with managing the risks to employees, customers and third parties.
