HSE has updated its guidance pages on how to manage the risks to volunteers.

The new guidance explains how health and safety law applies to volunteering and provides advice on carrying out risk assessments.

You can find illustrative examples of ways to manage the risks from specific activities.

There is also new guidance on when to report incidents involving volunteers.

The pages provide some specific advice for volunteers who manage non-domestic premises such as village and community halls, as well as guidance on charity retail and fundraising.
