It is easy to focus on risks on the golf course, and the fire risks that you could face in the clubhouse, when carrying out your golf club risk assessment, whilst neglecting those in other aspects of the golf club operation and on the health and safety spectrum. Our expert health and safety consultants at Gauntlet Golf will not let this happen, examining elements of your clubhouse safety including:

  • Walkways and possible trip and slip hazards
  • Maintenance of passenger lifts
  • Asbestos checks
  • Defects in the car park
  • Car park speed controls around the clubhouse
  • Gritting stores
  • Electrical safety and electrical installation testing
  • Portable appliance testing
  • Barriers on the edges of raised platforms
  • Clear markings to show changes in level
  • Maintenance of landscaped areas
  • Protection of water storage tanks from vermin and pests
  • Water testing in any facilities such as swimming pool, spa, sauna or health club
  • Safety in wet areas, (e.g showers for member use)
  • Measures to ensure the safe drying of clothing in a drying room
  • Water management
  • The safety of equipment in any children’s play area
  • Handrails on stairs
  • Clearly marked glazing

We will reference legislation and guidelines including:

  • The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012
  • The HSE’s ‘Control of Legionella Bacteria in Water Systems’

This thorough inspection will ensure that your clubhouse is as compliant with health and safety legislation as your golf course and greenkeepers’ workshops.
