Health and Safety
FAME health and safety strategy
FAME helps our members improve their management of safety and minimise harm to their employees, by providing guidance on best practice and helping define common standards. FAME has a Health and Safety Committee, chaired by a Board member, which meets regularly to explore issues and set the organisation’s strategy.
FAME health and safety support
Health and Safety support and advice is available to members through our Business Support Service, provided by QUEST. Members can obtain up to date H and S guidance, advice, news about changes to legislation, and a comprehensive range of key H and S document examples. A ‘Health Check and Gap Analysis’ is also offered. Specific queries can be dealt with through a telephone helpline.

Archaeology and CDM
HSE guidance now makes clear that stand alone archaeology projects are not subject to CDM regulations, and that where projects are part of construction, archaeologists can only act as sub-contractors to the Principal Contractor (archaeologists can NEVER assume the role of principal Contractor). Read the full statement.
FAME Health and Safety News
In addition to the Business Support Service, FAME provide regular news regarding H and S developments specifically relevant to the archaeology sector, as well updates on advocacy, initiatives and campaigns.
