Volunteering: Guidance for Employers

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has guidance on how to manage the risks to volunteers.

The guidance explains how health and safety law applies to volunteering.

It is mainly for employers or organisations who engage volunteers, such as charities, and will help them keep volunteers and and employees who work with them healthy and safe.

There is also information on:

•when to report incidents involving volunteers, and

•including volunteers in your risk assessments.

The pages provide some specific advice for volunteers who manage non-domestic premises such as village and community halls, as well as guidance on charity retail and fundraising.
