Health & Safety

The Haywards Heath & District Angling Society are committed to ensuring the safety and wellbeing of our members and committee members wherever possible. We appreciate that a lot of the works undertaken by our members to maintain our lakes and rivers can at times be dangerous which is why we have put in a place a dedicated health and safety policy along with risk assessment forms to help ensure accidents are prevented before they have a chance to occur.

Any member or committee member who is coordinating a work party is required to have read and familiarised themselves with our health and safety policy and to have to hand a copy of the appropriate risk assessment form or forms if more than one is required before carrying out work.

All forms can be downloaded on this page by clicking on the relevent title below:
