This company’s policy is to give a high level of priority to the promotion of the employee’s health and safety at work and the health and safety of others who may be affected by that work. This will be achieved by providing the necessary resources to carry out its Health and Safety policy effectively. The main elements of this Policy are as follows:
To ensure that all staff are informed of statutory Health and Safety requirements, company and other accepted rules, procedures and codes of practice, appropriate to their responsibilities.
To require that every employee, while at work, follows statutory regulations, company and other accepted rules, procedures and codes of practice, takes all reasonable care of the Health and Safety of himself and other persons who may be affected by his acts or omissions, and co-operates with management in the implementation of health and safety management measures.
To provide effective training and supervision in health and safety and to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, that all work places are provided with safe means of access and egress, are designed and maintained, so far as possible, to be free from danger and are without undue risk to health and safety.
To ensure that all plant, tools, motor vehicles, premises and equipment are designed and constructed or selected, with due consideration for health and safety of the users and that the plant etc. is maintained in a proper state of efficiency and repair.
To ensure that protective clothing and equipment, appropriate to the circumstances of the work is worn.
To provide as far as is reasonably practicable for the prompt first aid treatment of injuries and illnesses occurring during the course of work.
To provide a suitable system for communication and consultation with employees on Health and Safety matters.
To investigate and collect, analyze and present data on, accidents leading to personal injury or affecting the health of employees. To encourage the reporting and investigation of ‘near miss’ incidents and the inclusion of this data in statistics presented to the management and employees.
It is Line Management’s responsibility, from the General Manager down, to ensure that the Safety Policy, Safety Rules and Site Safety Instructions are implemented on Company sites, in company offices and workshops/stores. Safety is a Line Management Responsibility. It is our policy that regular and frequent checks will be carried out by our Managers and Agents.
Records of these inspections will be kept in duplicate, one copy sent to Head Office, the other copy retained by the Manager or Agent. All motor vehicle incidents must be reported immediately to Head Office. Damages must be reported immediately to the Manager responsible. Who will inform the utility concerned and Head Office?
The Safety Advisor will arrange training and provide assistance in regard to any Health and Safety related matter upon request from an owner of the Company.
If anyone has any queries regarding safety they should refer these to an authorized person or Manager of the Company.
