On Line Risk Assessment
The Clerk of Flagg Parish Council undertakes regular, systematic general examinations of working conditions, workplace activities and environmental factors to enable potential and inherent risks in the Parish Council’s activities to be identified and assessed. Parish Councillors can review this risk assessment at anytime and contact the Clerk for it to be updated online.
Flagg Parish Council is committed to take all practical and necessary steps to reduce or eliminate such risks.
