Gauntlet Golf’s health and safety consultancy service starts with a site visit to your golf club, where we will review every aspect of your business, from green keeping, the buggy store and your kitchen, to the operation of the club shop, your changing facilities and your plant rooms, workshops and stores.

We will make observations, take photographs, talk to your golf club employees and get a great feel for how your golf club operates and the systems that it has in place when it comes to mitigating risk and ensuring the safety of all who use the club and course.  We shall determine how your risks are controlled through preventative and protective measures and where these measures need to be changed or strengthened, to keep you compliant with health and safety legislation and guidelines.

Our expert consultant will cover all areas that satisfy a wide range of risk-focused health and safety legislation, including the:

  • Management of Health & Safety at Work Regulations 1999
  • RIDDOR – Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 1995
  • The Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992
  • The Health & Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981
  • The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 and Fire (Scotland) Act 2005

The format of the Gauntlet Risk Assessment is BS 18004:2008 ‘Guide to Achieving Effective Occupational Health and Safety Performance’.  We assess risk based on factors of likelihood and severity, to produce a risk level, and then indicate required actions and timescales that sit alongside these risk scenarios.

We can then help you turn your risk assessment into a living document that is continuously updated, when necessary, to reflect new circumstances.  We will also help you devise systems that will enable you to record and track corrective actions and suggest how you can share the findings of your risk assessment with contractors, employees, neighbours and golf club members.  Furthermore, we will help you establish systems that allow for suitable and sufficient health and safety induction training and refresher training.
