Ben Uri Gallery and Museum: Health and Safety Policy 2023

The Ben Uri Gallery and Museum works to maintain a positive health and safety culture. This requires commitment and active co-operation by staff and trustees alike, supported by sufficient resources and guidance.

The Museum is committed to a safe and healthy working environment and achieves this by:
● Eliminating hazards and reducing risks through audit, inspection, and risk assessment.
● Providing and maintaining materials, equipment and machinery
that are safe and do not present unacceptable risks.
● Delivering information, instruction, and supervision as necessary to ensure everybody can work safely.
● Ensuring safe working practices wherever the Gallery operates, to meet the expectation of a safe and healthy working environment and the prevention of work-related injury and ill health.
● Identifying risks and opportunities to ensure continual
improvement in health and safety performance.
● Providing adequate resources for the effective management of
health and safety. The Museum believes commitment to health and safety is essential in the proper execution of management responsibilities. All management and team leaders will maintain the necessary competencies and skills to effectively manage their health and safety responsibilities. Health and safety is an integral part of planning and implementation at all levels.


The Museum will endeavor to ensure the safety of visitors, partners and contractors at the gallery for events, and partnership collaborations and maintenance through effective communications. This health and safety policy is reviewed regularly and revised as required. It is available to all staff and trustees and brought to the attention of others working with or for the Museum digitally.


All staff and trustees are expected to implement the requirements of the Museum’s health and safety management system including, but not limited to:

● The reporting and investigation of incidents.
● Identification of hazards and management of risks.
● Ensuring the competence of staff and trustees.
● Ensuring adequate resources are provided to maintain a safe and healthy environment.


All staff and trustees are responsible for ensuring, as far as is reasonably practicable, the health and safety of all visitors, contractors and others who may be affected by the activities they manage both on site and elsewhere.


To maintain the positive health and safety culture to which the Museum aspires, all staff must be competent and discharge their responsibilities. To this end staff are expected to acquire the information necessary and to maintain their competencies during their employment.


All staff are expected to:
● To take reasonable care for their health and safety and the health and safety of anyone who may be affected by their actions or non-actions at work.

● To cooperate with the Museum or other site users and comply with agreed safety arrangements.
● To not intentionally or recklessly interfere with or misuse anything provided in the interests of health, safety, or welfare in pursuance of any of the relevant statutory provisions.
● To report to their manager any work situation representing a
serious and imminent danger.
