HEALTH AND SAFETY POLICY

 

GENERAL STATEMENT

 

 

I recognise that the Health and Safety of my employees is of the utmost importance.  Therefore I aim to 'so far as is reasonably practicable' provide and maintain safe and healthy working conditions, equipment and safe systems of work for all our employees. I will 'so far as is reasonably practicable', provide them with the necessary information, resources and training to achieve this aim.

 

Appropriate preventative and protective measures are, and will continue to be implemented; following the identification of work related hazards and assessments of the risks associated with them.

 

I also accept my responsibility for the Health and Safety of other persons (sub-contractors, clients, general public, etc) who may be affected by our activities.

 

I recognise the importance of employee / employer consultation on matters regarding Health and Safety and welcome individual consultation prior to the implementation of Health and Safety functions / procedures.

 

The allocation of specific duties for Health and Safety matters, the identification of competent persons appointed with particular responsibilities, and the arrangements made to implement this policy are set out herein.

 

Expert advice will be sought as necessary when determining Health and Safety risks and the measures required to control them.

 

The objectives of this Health and Safety Policy Statement can only be achieved through the support and co-operation of all employees, sub-contractor and other persons who use these premises / sites.

 

This policy will be kept up to date, particularly as things change in nature and size.  To ensure this, the policy and the way in which it has operated will be reviewed whenever it is deemed necessary, or as a minimum requirement annually.
