Report by Sgt (ATC) Emily Campbell
1563 (Buckingham) Squadron have been awarded with a Gold Star Award for Health and Safety.
Every year, Health and Safety inspections are conducted at every Squadron in the UK. The Air Cadet Organisation has a robust Health and Safety policy and from this all Squadrons have guidelines they follow.
Each Squadron is assessed on a Bronze/Silver/Gold sliding scale as laid out by Headquarters Air Cadets. The idea of this is so that parents/guardians and anyone else who looks at an individual Squadron can see how ‘risk-aware’ they are.
After their most recent inspection, Buckingham Squadron has been found to have reached the Gold standard award.
