STATEMENT OF COMPANY POLICY FOR HEALTH, SAFETY & WELFARE
It is the Company’s intention that work will be carried out in accordance with the relevant Statutory Provisions and all reasonably practicable measures taken to avoid risk to its employees or others who may be affected.
Management and supervisory staff have the responsibility for implementing this Policy throughout the Company and must ensure that Health & Safety considerations are always given priority in planning and day-to-day supervision of work.
All Employees and Sub-contractors are expected to co-operate with the Company in carrying out this Policy and must ensure that their own work, so far as is reasonably practicable, is carried out without risk to themselves or others.
The Board of Directors have appointed Mr Colin Whitehead, as having particular responsibility for Health, Safety and Welfare and to whom reference should be made in the event of any difficulty arising in the implementation of this Policy.
The operation of this Policy will be monitored by the management and staff of the Company. To assist them in this respect, the Company have appointed Bradley Environmental Consultants Ltd. as its Safety Advisers in accordance with Regulation 7 of the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations (1999), to give advice on the requirements of the relevant statutory provisions and safety matters generally.
The Statement of Company Policy will be displayed prominently at all sites and workplaces. The organisation and arrangements for implementing the Policy will also be available at each site and workplace for reference by any employees as required. The Company Health and Safety Policy Manual will be reviewed on an annual basis, or following a major change in legislation or the company organisation, and updated accordingly
Signed: Mr C Whitehead & Mr A Green, Board of Directors
