Health And Safety Policy
At Inside Out Photography (IOP), we take health and safety seriously! We are fully conversant of all health and safety issues relevant to the duties of a professional photographer.
The founder of IOP Bernard O’Sullivan has over Thirty-Six years personal experience of working safely and equally importantly, recording others working safely, in compliance to current health and safety regulations.
IOP’s policy is simply this; if a situation does not comply with current health and safety regulations or, if it simply appears to be unsafe, it does not get photographed!
This approach is designed in part, to protect you the client from inadvertently breaching H&S requirements by using an image in a brochure, exhibition or website, that might be deemed to depict unsafe work practice.
