At Busy Bees we are serious about the health, safety, and welfare of everyone affected by our business – your children; our staff; parents; visitors; and anyone who comes to work in our premises, including our contractors. We employ our own in house team of experts to advise and monitor health and safety on a daily basis.
Every year we have our gas, electrical, lifts, and water systems checked by independent experts, as well as our fire risk assessments.
Our health and safety management system complies with the international standard BS OHSAS 18001:2007 and we are independently audited by the British Standards Institution against this standard. No other nursery or nursery organisation in the UK has achieved this. It works like this – we put systems in place - we check our own checking systems and others check what we’re checking to make sure we’re doing everything we say we’re doing to protect those who depend on us.
We regularly audit our premises to make sure they are complying, not just with the law, but also our own higher health and safety and food safety standards. We achieve good food safety awards and we’re proud to advertise the ratings we get from Environmental Health Officers who inspect our sites.
