The health and safety of our employees is of paramount importance. We aim to provide and maintain safe and healthy working conditions, equipment and systems of work for all our employees and to provide them with the necessary information, instruction and training to achieve this.
Appropriate preventative and protective measures shall be implemented
following the identification of work related hazards and assessment of the
risks associated with them. We recognise the importance of
employer/employee consultation on matters of health and safety and the
value of individual consultation prior to allocating specific health and safety
functions. We also accept our responsibility for the health and safety of
persons other than employees who may be affected by our activities. The
allocation of duties for safety matters, the identity of competent persons
appointed with particular responsibilities and the arrangements made to
implement this policy are set out herein and/or in associated health and
safety documents and records.
Expert advice shall be sought as necessary when determining health and safety risks and the measures required to guard against these risks.
The objectives of this safety statement can only be achieved through the support and co-operation of employees and all other persons who use the Company’s premises and work sites, e.g. contractors, visitors’ etc.
The contents of this statement shall be kept up to date to reflect changes in the nature of the activities and the size or complexity of the organisation. We shall review its effectiveness as appropriate and at least on an annual basis.
