Carpe Diem Fitness is committed to high standards of health & safety and common sense. It is our policy, as a company, to maintain high standards at all times and to encourage our staff to contribute to their own welfare and that of their colleagues. Maintaining a safe and healthy working environment places demands on everyone in the company but the resultant benefits are worth every bit of the effort.
Ensuring safety awareness, positive attitudes and continuous improvement in safety performance requires the commitment and active involvement of the Directors, employees and freelance staff of Carpe Diem fitness.
Our objectives are, so far as is reasonable, to avoid accidents, injuries, damage to property and to maintain strong relationships with the local community in which we operate. Conservation of the environment in which we operate is the central policy of our business and this ethos runs throughout everything we do.
The company will, in the conduct of its activities, and so far as is reasonably practicable:
Protect the health & safety of its employees, freelance staff and others that may be affected by its activities.
Limit adverse effects on the physical environment in which those activities are carried out.

Because of the nature of the Carpe Diem Fitness activities and to ensure customers maximum enjoyment the company respectfully advises customers to advise the company before taking part, of any illnesses, injuries, medication or reason why they should not participate. This may not prevent customers from taking part but ensures their maximum safety and valued participation.

The responsibility for establishing and maintaining policies on health and safety matters lies with the Directors of Carpe Diem Fitness.
