We’re thrilled to announce that we are now working with Ypeople – a fantastic charity that operates across Scotland. They deliver a broad range of approaches to support children, young people and families, for example providing accommodation support, homelessness support, counselling and mentoring services. With around 170 employees, thousands of service users per year (including residential and community based services for a range of service users including people in housing need, asylum seekers and children and young people) and 19 locations, spread over a wide geographical area, Ypeople need to ensure that their health and safety management system is tailored to reflect their specific requirements and responsibilities.

Initially, our Director Allan MacDonald met with the team to understand their needs and requirements, and to do a full gap analysis exercise to provide a review of their current health & safety management system, benchmarked against applicable legislation, recognised best practice, and care inspectorate standards.

Allan said: “Working with the Facilities Manager, as well as HR Managers and workers, we carried out a thorough review which covered all policy and procedures associated with health and safety, including risk assessments, fire risk assessments, maintenance logs, training records, accident and inspection reports. Now we’re delighted to be moving on to providing a full retained consultancy service to Ypeople. Among other tasks, we’ll be developing their policies and procedures, undertaking fire safety work, and updating their health and safety management system.”

Working in partnership, we’re looking forward to helping Ypeople to take proactive steps towards developing a robust approach to health and safety management, while also growing and improving the safety culture throughout the whole organisation.
