Operational assurance overview: Health and Safety: Animals

The most likely contact is with guard dogs. The business’s staff or security agency should control them. As with vehicles and machinery, the best way to avoid injury is to stay well away from dogs. If confronted by an uncontrolled/unconfined animal your first priority should be to get to a position of safety. Then you should attract the attention of the business’s staff and ask that they bring the animal under control.

If you have been bitten or scratched seek medical attention immediately. You may need an anti-tetanus injection. There is guidance on vaccinations and biological infection hazards on the About You Health and Safety intranet pages.
