Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (the Trust) recognises its statutory responsibility to protect the health, safety and welfare of its staff, clients and visitors using its services and facilities.

It is management’s responsibility to:

  • Assess and record in writing any significant risk caused by work or training activities.
  • Provide and maintain safe plant and systems of work.
  • Make arrangements for the regular assessment, control and transport of articles and substances, which are classified as hazardous to health and providing hazard data with all such items
  • Provide safe places of work with safe access and egress.
  • Provide and maintain a working environment which is safe and without risk to health.
  • Ensure effective systems are in place to manage stress within the Trust’s workforce, and where appropriate, ensure that adequate resources are available to support those systems.

At the same time, the Trust draws to the attention of its employees their own responsibility:

  • To take reasonable care for the health and safety of themselves and other persons who may be affected by their acts or omissions at work.
  • To co-operate with the Trust and its managers to achieve proper health and safety standards at work.
  • Not to intentionally or recklessly interfere with or misuse anything provided in the interests of health, safety or welfare at work.
  • Report any accident/incidents or near misses in accordance with the Trusts Incident Reporting Procedure.
