Health and safety

Many health and safety accidents and illnesses can be prevented by a strong safety culture at work, i.e. ensuring everyone has the values, attitudes, and behaviours to make the right choice when it comes to the health and safety of yourself and others.

NHS Property Services is committed to support the NHS by developing a positive and strong safety culture to ensure everyone who works for us, and those affected by what we do, goes home safe and well.

How we ensure the health, safety and wellbeing of our people and those around us

Our workforce undertake a diverse range of jobs from those lone workers driving from job to job to fix lights and clean spillages, to our construction team on site at a new development, and our people who work in offices or more likely, from home, these days.

With such a diverse group of people to look after, we have created a Health and Safety Management System made up of guidance, risk assessments, training, alerts, forums and champions to ensure the health and safety of our people and those who our work impacts.

NHS Property Services is presented with an International Safety Award
