The term community safety is a complex and widely interpreted phrase. It ultimately means the protection of everyone's right to live without fear for their and other people's safety. It is a relatively new concept, which has only recently taken face with the introduction of the Crime and Disorder Act 1998.

Community safety strategies have created new partnerships and installed a sense of security and safety among local communities. Different organisations bring diverse resources, skills and knowledge to the partnership. However, each organisation has its own set of objectives to pursue and must operate within individual management systems and structures. The challenge facing community safety partnerships is to develop a local management model which is acceptable to all partners and which ensures the partnerships' objectives are achieved. Its approach is based upon the formation of partnerships between the communities, public, private and voluntary sectors (including local businesses) to formulate and introduce community-based measures against crime. This is achieved by partners working closely together to strategically select, coordinate and implement their development initiatives and crime control efforts in order to produce effective results. The law imposes a responsibility on the employer to ensure safety at work for all employees.

The organization must take reasonable steps to ensure the health, safety, and welfare of their employees at work.
