Bath Cricket Club have always felt that H&S was of primary importance and had used a national firm to provide H&S Advice for many years.
While the advice from the National was very good, Bath Cricket Club wanted a more proactive and personal relationship with their adviser. The Club wanted an adviser that could build a long-term relationship with them and understand their business, someone that was happy to visit site when the cricket club needed and provide support quickly, rather than have a service that felt remote and formulaic.
MHA Monahans was able to provide that personal service by providing a nominated Health and Safety Consultant that created a fresh and user friendly health and safety management system for the club. This system included comprehensive risk assessments, policies and suite of documents that the club could use to evidence its commitment to health and safety. These documents would be used by the club on a daily basis and updated by MHA Monahans annually to ensure policies and risk assessments were current according to their needs and changing legislation.
How we helped
Debbie Anstis worked with the club to really understand their needs and provide documents that were designed for them rather than a generic system that was ‘one size fits all’. These documents have evolved over the years as the club has changed, ensuring they work with the business, and can be used with new recruits when needed.
Providing practical advice in person enabled the new Operations Manager to quickly understand safety systems for the club.
This new documented system saved time for the club as they were able to concentrate on their core activities youth and senior cricket.
