WLT Risk Assessment

The Trustees have a duty to assess risks arising from hazards in the workplace, particularly those relating to the Health and Safety at Work Act.  In addition, they must consider annually other risks that may affect the Trust’s operations and take appropriate actions. 

The CEO has reviewed issues for which the Trustees are probably liable and believes the Trust has taken appropriate steps to minimise the risks involved.

In February 2011 the Trustees approved the annual review of the WLT risk assessment, carried out according to advice issued by the Charities Commission under the following categories of risk:
