Heathland and Acid Grassland Habitat Action Plan
File Size: 227kb    Key Document Click here to see more information about the document

This Habitat Action Plan has been prepared through consuktation with a range of organisations and specialists within the Isle of Wight BAP partnership. It was first produced in 2002 and reviewed on 2008. Heathland and Acid grassland have both been identified as priority habitats in the UK Biodiversity Action Plan. Because the extent of true lowland heath is restricted on the Island and because these two habitats tend to occur in close association and are subject to similar threats and conservation requirements, they have been combined within this single Habitat Action Plan for the Isle of Wight. The Action Plan seeks to ensure that national objectives for these two habitats are translated into effective action on the Island, taking into account local issues.

File Size: 515kb    Key Document Click here to see more information about the document

 

This manual has been produced with the concept of providing Isle of Wight Council managers, supervisors and other persons with an interest in health and safety, with a source of reference, which will assist them in managing health and safety and enable them to formulate and develop their own in-house safety documentation.

File Size: 1mb    Key Document Click here to see more information about the document

Although it is now illegal to use asbestos in the construction or refurbishment of any premises, many asbestos containing materials which were used in the past remain in place. It is reassuring that as long as such materials are in good condition and not disturbed or damaged there is no risk and need not be removed. They can, however, become a danger to health if disturbance or damage allows asbestos fibres to be released into the air where people can breathe them in.

File Size: 179kb    Key Document Click here to see more information about the document

The persons responsible for the implementation of this policy are Directors, and the co- operation of all managers and employees is essential to its success. This policy should be read in conjunction with the additional guidance set out in the relevant section of the I W Council Health and Safety Manual.

Health and Safety Manual - 2.09 Electrical Safety (Inspection & Testing)
File Size: 174kb    Key Document Click here to see more information about the document

1.1. There is no statutory frequency of inspection and testing for portable electrical equipment. The frequency of testing should reflect the risk of the appliance causing damage or injury. This increases with amount of appliance use and the harshness of its working environment.
1.2. The generally accepted description of portable electrical equipment is that it has a lead and a plug and can easily be moved from place to place this would include vacuum cleaners, kettles, heaters, fans, televisions and desk lamps. This type of equipment tends to be class I or earthed equipment and therefore poses the higher risk because of the frequent use and moving.
1.3. The description also refers to equipment that could be moved such as photocopiers, fax machines and desk top computers. The majority of this equipment is double insulated or class II equipment and is usually infrequently moved. Office equipment is regarded as low risk with respect to hazards arising from portable electrical appliances.

Housing Renewal Enforcement Policy
File Size: 320kb    Key Document Click here to see more information about the document

The aim of the Section’s work is to raise the standard of private sector housing conditions, improving home safety, bring empty properties back into use and to intervene where private drainage is causing a nuisance. In doing so, the Section helps to achieve the vision of the Authority which is “a progressive island built on economic success, high standards and aspirations and a better quality of life for all”, as well as the following Council Corporate Objectives: -

· Driving the sustainable regeneration and development of the Island

· Improving the health and well-being of Island communities

· Creating safer and stronger communities

· Improving outcomes for children and young people

· A high performing cost effective Council

One method by which the Housing Renewal Section achieves this aim is by the appropriate use of enforcement. Enforcement action can be taken against landlords and owner-occupiers alike.

The Housing Renewal Section carries out enforcement intervention by responding both reactively and proactively.

File Size: 234kb    Key Document Click here to see more information about the document

Risk assessment is the corner stone of all health and safety practise within the Council.  By implementing a programme of suitable and sufficient risk assessment in all of its activities and by implementing the findings, the Council will ensure that its employees, service users, contractors and members of the public are protected from harm as far as is reasonably practicable. 

The Council recognises its responsibility towards staff, contractors, service users and members of the public for managing risks under Sections 2 and 3 of the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and Regulation 3 of the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999.

The identification of hazards and the assessment of risks are key parts of the Isle of Wight Council’s policy for securing good standards of health and safety and a statutory requirement under the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999.

The purpose of risk assessment is to find out if the Council is managing health and safety effectively and to see if improvements can be made. The assessments will cover the tasks undertaken by staff, procedures, plant, substances and workplaces.

Please note: In order to improve on the existing arrangements for health and safety monitoring and reporting the Council has invested in the Workrite accident reporting and management system. This system completely replaces the old paper based system for reporting accidents, incidents, near misses, harassment and violence and ill health.
However, some services or areas do not have readily available access to a computer. Therefore, in these circumstances this form is available for those areas to complete the initial details. As soon as possible after the accident or incident, all details recorded must be entered into Workrite. Once this is complete there is no need to keep this form and should be disposed of in accordance with the Data Protection policy.
For full details and guidance see Health and Safety Manual - 2.01 Accident and Incident Reporting and Investigation Policy.



Health and Safety Manual - 2.01 Accident and Incident Reporting and Investigation
File Size: 513kb    Key Document Click here to see more information about the document

An accident or incident is an unplanned and unwelcome event that interrupts normal activity. Accidents or incidents can result in no damage or injury (near miss) as well as cause illness, disease, injuries, damage to equipment and property.
Reporting workplace accidents, incidents and ill health and determining the cause is extremely important. It is essential that even minor accidents are reported and properly investigated so that causes are identified and control measures put in place to prevent recurrence.
The investigation of “near misses” is very important as this can help to ensure that action is taken to prevent the more serious consequences of continued failure and assist in the identification of trends and patterns. Such analysis can help identify shortcoming and weaknesses in management systems, work equipment and training, etc. Most accidents or incidents are preventable or their effects can be minimised by reasonable precautions.
This policy provides information and guidance on accident investigation and other relevant documentation to help assist staff in this process.

Health and Safety Manual - Personal Safety Guidance for Elected Members
File Size: 172kb    Key Document Click here to see more information about the document

An important role of councillors is to keep in touch with their communities. This includes helping residents with any problems they might have. Often this extends beyond just the delivery of council services. These contacts are usually rewarding and non-adversarial.
However, residents sometimes approach their councillor because they have been unsuccessful in resolving an issue though other channels and consequently such approaches could potentially become confrontational.
Circumstances will vary and councillors will take their own decisions about how to conduct their duties as councillors while remaining easily accessible to their residents.
In general terms, the guidance follows advice given to others who by virtue of public duties or employment meet many people whom they do not know.
