BHP Health and Safety policy

Brent Housing Partnership (BHP) is constantly striving to improve standards of health, safety and welfare at work. As employees managing the council's housing stock we embrace the challenge to lead by example to stimulate higher standards.

We will aim to achieve continuous improvement in standards through the setting of objectives and targets. Compliance with the Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974 and associated regulations will be considered to be the minimum acceptable standard.

People are our most important asset and, as such, higher standards of Health and Safety and employee welfare must be an integral part of our improving performance.

Our Health and Safety Policy is consistent with and complements council policies which aim to improve our performance and the quality of life in Brent e.g. corporate environmental policy, achieving best value services, promoting community safety, supporting business, and creating a modern well-managed authority. 

We recognise that Health and Safety is a prime responsibility of directors, senior management, line managers and supervisors who have direct responsibility for activities and employees under their leadership. And that this duty extends to ensuring residents and visitors should enjoy safe and healthy access to, and use of, all council services and facilities.
