On this page you will find tips and guidelines on charity and fundraising events.


Safety Tips when using Candles (download leaflet)
The use of candles to create a special atmosphere is now very common. However, it is important to remember that they can be the cause of major fires and serious injuries if not used correctly. Simple precautions should mean that candles can be used safely.


How to carry out a risk assessment and create a safety statement (download leaflet)
The Health and Safety Authority (HSA) provides the publication Guidelines on Risk Assessments and Safety Statements available to purchase a hard copy version or download free from their website www.hsa.ie.


Safe Planning of Visits & Outings (download leaflet)
Visits and outings play an important part in the life of many charities, giving people the opportunity to undertake activities away from their normal surroundings. Outings can range from a simple trip to the shops, to a day out, to holidays lasting for a week or more.


Preparation and sale of food (download leaflet)
Following the introduction of recent legislation, there has been a great deal of confusion over the position of charities with regard to the provision and sale of food, particularly where this has been produced by voluntary helpers.


Volunteers (download leaflet)
Whilst charities make extensive use of volunteers they are often overlooked when it comes to health and safety.


The Disability Act 2005 (download leaflet)
The Disability Act 2005 has imposed obligations on public bodies to make buildings and services accessible to people with disabilities so that disabled persons can receive the benefit of those services in the same way as can the able-bodied.


Sale of Second Hand Goods (download leaflet)
Each year many dangerous items (particularly electrical items) are generously donated to jumble sales and charities with the end customers often being the most vulnerable members of society.

First Aid and Tips (download leaflet)
No matter what type of premises you have and irrespective of the nature of your activities, First Aid facilities should be provided for employees and visitors in the event of illness or injury whilst on your premises.


Use of Ladders (download leaflet)
Every year, many people are injured, some fatally, while using ladders. A fall from as little as two metres can be fatal. More than half the accidents occur because ladders are not securely placed and fixed.


Parades and charity walks (download leaflet)
Large numbers of people walking along roads obviously creates a hazard, and unless adequate precautions are taken to safeguard walkers, there is a high risk of death and injury.


Bouncy Castles (download leaflet)
There is little Irish research on injuries sustained on bouncy castles, despite the increased use and growing number of injuries presented to hospital Emergency Departments. UK Government statistics indicate that annually there are approximately 10,000 accidents involving bouncy castles which result in injuries to children. Some 4,000 were caused by bouncy castles being used at home, and 6,000 at locations away from the home.


Planning an Event (download leaflet)
The organisation of events has long been a method used by charities and not-for-profit organisations for fund-raising and in the main, has proved to be very successful.
