Feeling safe at work

Each and every apprentice should feel safe and happy in their working environment. You should never feel as if you have been put in a dangerous situation or be asked to do something potentially risky, without proper training. When anyone starts a new job there will always be things they don’t know about the workplace but these will become clear, over time. If you are unsure of something, you must ask.

There are many laws in place to ensure employers operate a safe workplace and keep their staff informed of any hazards involved in the job. It is their responsibility to ensure you feel safe at work.

I WANT TO REPORT AN ISSUE

Any allegation or disclosure involving a child, young person or adult at risk should be reported immediately.
Click here to report a safeguarding issue or incident, or call 01622 585 588. Alternatively, you can email safeguarding@parenta.com

If you don’t feel safe at work, or if you feel as if you have been put in a potentially risky situation that you do not feel comfortable with, you can let us know straight away here.  Or, if you want to report an issue or incident that you feel has put someone else at risk, you can do so here.

Any information regarding a safeguarding issue or incident is given in the strictest of confidence.

Support and information if you’re affected by what is happening in Ukraine

We understand that the current situation in Ukraine is affecting many of us.

We want to let you know that at Parenta, we are here to help - and if you, or any of your team members, are feeling upset by what you are seeing and hearing on the news, it’s important to know that this is not uncommon at all.

Sometimes, events which are out of our control can make us feel uneasy and anxious; so it’s important to be able to access information that is easily understood and doesn’t cause confusion and more upset.

We are here to support the sector and have included below some useful information and website links to help you understand the situation more easily:

· FirstNews is an incredibly informative website which is aimed at parents and children - and regardless of your age, explains the news in a way that we can all understand. It describes, in detail, what is happening in Ukraine and why; and you can also download an easy-to-read condensed version which you can print out and discuss with your family or team members.

· The BBC’s Newsround pages are also full of really useful advice and guidance, and just like FirstNews, it gives the important facts about the crisis but also tips about what to do if you’re feeling upset about what you’ve seen, read, or heard, e.g. sharing your worries, knowing that it’s absolutely normal to feel upset in these circumstances, and to do things that make you happy.

· If you or any of your team need to contact the London embassy of Ukraine or its surrounding countries, we have compiled a list which you can find here.
