Health and Safety

Because Healthy and Safety (and Fire) laws and regulations change frequently and are very detailed the Association of Pet Dog Trainers are not in a position to assess whether you are complying with all necessary statutes.

However, Members should be aware of relevant Health and Safety law and current best practice and have a duty of care to clients while running classes and organising events.

The Association recommends that you carry out a written risk assessment that is reviewed regularly. In preparing these assessments you may find the following websites to be useful:

www.hse.gov.uk/risk/index.htm
www.hse.gov.uk/risk/practice.htm
www.hse.gov.uk/pubns/indg163.pdf

Alternatively, you may wish to engage a Registered Safety Practitioner or other competent person. We also recommend that Members liaise with their Insurance providers as there may be specific conditions attached to the policy.
