Safety

Who is responsible for safety during my booking?

Each booking requires a Named Responsible Person. This person will receive a full safety briefing and is responsible for all attendees. The Trustees undertake regular safety inspections to ensure the hall complies with the Health and Safety regulations, but during your hire period you should first carry out a risk assessment of your own, record and report any accidents or equipment faults and ensure you know how to, and inform your guests how to evacuate the building in an emergency.

What should I do in the event of a fire?

The Fire Evacuation Procedure is displayed in each room (by the rear and the front doors in the main Hall) and in the hallways and stairwells.

What should I do if someone has an accident at the Barbour Institute?

Any accident needs to be brought to the attention of the office and recorded in the accident book (located in the First Aid Kit).

There is some faulty equipment at the Barbour Institute, what should I do?

Please bring any faulty equipment to the attention of the office.
