Health and Safety

 

Running a centre like StreetLight involves a lot of hard work, but at the forefront of everything we do is the users' safety. 

 

StreetLight Trustees and Staff involved in running the centre believe that the following measures will demonstrate the Charity’s commitment to safety as well as adding additional safeguards to the people who make use of the StreetLight Centre

 

Centre Staff are DBS checked

There are centre staff about at all times to supervise the centre.

When the skate park is open to the public we have a qualified first aider present on site

Marshalls who work at streetlight go through on-site specific first aid training.

The centre and skate park are overseen by CCTV to cover any incidents on the park or cafe.

Full Risk assessments have been completed and daily checks are carried out on the centre. 

StreetLight’s insurance is £5 million public liability insurance.  But please understand that bmxing, scootering, skate boarding, and inline skating are dangerous and can result in injury or death.
