Health and Safety
We will make proper provision for the health, safety and welfare at work of our employees and others who may be affected by the company’s activities. This policy describes the arrangements we have made for managing our health and safety affairs.
We aim to achieve this by:-
Adopting an effective health and safety management system
Allocating clear accountabilities to support its implementation
Providing suitable resources to meet its commitments
Maintaining consultation and dialogue with employees
In particular, we will:-
Comply with relevant legal requirements and industry standards
Assess work activities to eliminate hazards and minimise risks
Set objectives and targets, and prepare action plans to maintain compliance and support performance improvement
Provide suitable training to develop appropriate competencies and skills
Review performance, investigate incidents and implement lessons learned
Arrange for periodic audit of the management system
Provide access to competent professional advice
Work with regulators and industry bodies to implement relevant legal requirements and trade standards
Directors and line managers will integrate the implementation of this policy into their normal management arrangements and ensure it is given equal priority to all other aspects of business management.
Employees have responsibilities for working safely and they will be involved in the realisation of our policy commitments.
