Health and Safety Resources

Here are a range of useful links to help you source health and safety information. They cover a number of topics that might be relevant to a small charity or community group. Also provided are some of Green Pepper’s downloadable documents to help you manage health and safety more effectively.

From time to time, Green Pepper runs training on health and safety for small charities. For more details, please see upcoming events. If you need help or advice, consultancy is also available as a service.
