Health & Safety

Protecting the health, safety and well being of our staff and tenants is important to us. Managing our Health & Safety activities is an essential part of risk management, core principles of North Star’s business operation and is led by our board and directors.

Our principles are:

Strong and active leadership from the top:

  • Visible, active commitment from board and directors
  • Effective ‘downward’ communication systems and management structures
  • Integration of good health and safety management with business decisions

Employee involvement:

  • Engaging our colleagues in the promotion and achievement of safe and healthy conditions
  • Effective ‘upward’ communication
  • Take up and commitment to high quality training

Assessment & Review:

  • Identifying and managing health and safety risk
  • Accessing and following competent advice
  • Monitoring, reporting and reviewing performance

North Star’s Head of Assets and Property Services is the lead for Health & Safety across the organisation supported by a Steering Group who monitor the implementation of the policy, ensuring that Health & Safety procedures are effectively applied and regularly reviewed and revised.
