We Comply with the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and Subsequent Legislation
It is Gainsborough’s policy to comply with the terms of the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and subsequent legislation and to provide and maintain a healthy and safe working environment.
Gainsborough’s health and safety objective is to minimise the number of instances of occupational accidents and illnesses and ultimately to achieve an accident-free workplace.
We have our own Health and Safety Adviser, fully qualified to the latest standards.
All employees will be provided with such equipment, information, training and supervision as is necessary to implement the policy and achieve the stated objective.
Gainsborough recognise and accept their duty to protect the health and safety of all visitors to contracted events, including contractors and temporary workers, as well as any members of the public who might be affected by our operations.
Whilst the management of Gainsborough will do all that is within its powers to ensure the health and safety of its employees, it is recognised that health and safety at work is the responsibility of each and every individual associated with the Company. It is the duty of each employee to take reasonable care of their own and other people’s welfare and to report any situation which may pose a threat to the well-being of any other person.
The management of Gainsborough will provide every employee with the training necessary to carry out their tasks safely. However, if an employee is unsure how to perform a certain task or feels it would be dangerous to perform a specific job then it is the employee’s duty to report this to their Supervisor or Manager. An effective health and safety programme requires continuous communication between workers at all levels. It is therefore every worker’s responsibility to report immediately any situation which could jeopardise the well-being of themselves or any other person.
All injuries, however small, sustained by a person at work must be reported to the Events Security Manager or a delegated representative. Accident records are crucial to the effective monitoring and revision of the policy and must therefore be accurate and comprehensive.
Gainsborough’s Health and Safety Policy will be continually monitored and updated, particularly when changes in the scale and nature of our operations occur. The Policy will be updated at least every 12 months.
Thank you so much. You guys will be my first port of call for any security needs for future events that I’m running at TP.
Please thank your guys for their absolute professionalism and good humour throughout the night. Your team were integral to the smooth running of the event and the positive response we have received from the management at Tullett Prebon and our brokers and clients this morning is owed to them as part of a slick operation!

Just wanted to thank you for looking after Olly and Stacey at last week’s boat show. I will be in touch if we take Olly down to the Sunseeker factory, be great for you to come along too. Maybe sort something out later in the Spring after the tour?
Should be going to Glastonbury also, so no doubt see you there!
The recent WorldSkills London 2011 took over the entire 90,000m2 of floor space at ExCeL London making it the largest and most complex event ever to be held at the venue with nearly 200,000 people participating in the event over four days.
Gainsborough provided the security provision and demonstrated an exceptional level of service both during the planning stages and onsite. From assisting with preparing delegate bags to managing crowds no job was too big or too small and the team consistently delivered above and beyond what was expected of them. The staff were pleasant, enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the event right across the board plus the consistency of the same staff at pitch stage, throughout the planning phase to delivering the event onsite made a huge difference and was a refreshing change.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Gainsborough to anyone who is looking for a professional service with a personal touch and complete peace of mind over the safety and security of the event and its visitors. I am looking forward to working with the team on future projects and would like to say a massive thank you on behalf of the WorldSkills London team for all their hard work and commitment
