Health & Safety

UL Wolves Health & Safety 

In UL Wolves Clubs and Societies, every members’ safety is central to everything we do. We work with health and safety consultants who are at the fore of their industry to establish a suite of SOPs, risk assessments, training sessions and more. We also work closely with our insurance brokers with regard to our various policies.

It is important to note that, as with all policies, there are limits and conditions. Our personal accident policy is not designed to replace your personal need for insurance cover and should only be used where you do not have your own cover. This information has been emailed to all UL Wolves members upon signing up along with a request to make whomever pays your insurance aware of this.
