Volunteer's Health and Safety Documentation


The safety of our volunteers is a matter of prime concern to us all in the West Berkshire Countryside Society and the documentation listed on this page forms the basis of our health and safety strategy. The essence of this strategy is the focus of each of our task briefings performed by the task leader for the day. Site coordinators, task leaders and volunteers are encouraged to read the following documents which can be downloaded as PDF documents. 


                               We recommend you start by reading our volunteer's handbook and then go on to more detailed specific items:
