Our policy, as required by the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974, is to provide adequate control of the health and safety risks arising from our work activities and to ensure compliance with all of our legal obligations and to prevent accidents and cases of work-related ill health.
To enable us to do this we shall provide adequate resources to ensure the highest possible standards of health and safety are achieved within the organisation.
We recognise that our employees play an integral part in the provision of a safe workplace and undertake to provide such information, training and supervision as they need for this purpose. In addition, we shall consult with our employees on matters affecting their health and safety.
We shall provide and maintain safe plant and equipment as well as ensuring safe handling and use of substances in order to prevent accidents and cases of work-related ill health.
The responsibilities for health and safety are important and the particular arrangements that we have made are set out in this policy and also within the rest of the Health and Safety Manual.
This policy will be kept up to date, particularly as the business changes in nature and size. To ensure this, the policy and the way in which it is operated, will be reviewed and re-signed every year.
