Principles

GH Safety’s vision is to lead the way in ensuring comprehensive compliance in Health & Safety legislation for our clients across the UK. Equality, diversity and inclusion are at the heart of realising this vision.

Our approach to equality and diversity is based on the following principles:

Fairness

We will work in a way which promotes equality and diversity and which does not discriminate against any of our employees, associates or service users.

Respect

We will work in partnership with staff, service users and volunteers to encourage a culture where everyone receives respect and can voice their diverse needs, knowing that they will be heard.

Honesty

We will work to ensure that our practices are transparent and open to scrutiny.

Providing opportunity

We will work towards a culture where all service users, staff and volunteers have the opportunity to reach their full potential.

Expertise and excellence

We will work to high standards to ensure that the diverse needs of service users are recognised and met.

Achieving our vision: taking action and getting results

The action we take to achieve our vision is vital is covered by GH Safety’s Equality and Diversity Scheme and action plan. The scheme reflects our commitment to good practice and identifies the key issues for GH Safety as an employer and service provider. It takes account of legislative and regulatory requirements and identifies key goals to be achieved.

To integrate equality and diversity into everything we do, all of GH Safety’s directorates have equality and diversity action plans. Corporate and regional equality and diversity working groups ensure good practice is shared and barriers identified.

Getting involved and keeping informed

People who work for and with GH Safety or who use GH Safety’s services are integral to making our vision of equality and diversity a reality. This includes:

  • playing an active role in equality and diversity and engagement working groups
  • taking part in corporate and local training and awareness programmes to equip staff and service users with the skills and knowledge they need to understand and meet the needs of colleagues and service users
  • reading GH Safety’s Equality and Diversity Scheme
  • making a commitment to be involved and become a diversity champion
