Health and Safety

Health & safety is of prime importance on any work site. WRG Canal Camps have an excellent safety record. This part of the leaders site comprises all of Waterway Recovery Group's Health and Safety documentation.            

Each Leadership Team must prepare risk assessments and method statements to clearly show how they are going to carry out the work safety. A copy of this paperwork must be sent to WRG Head Office before the start of the camp.

Example risk assessments and method statements  The HSE website also give good guidance, examples and good practice ideas.
