Health & Safety

It is this Company’s Policy to perform and comply with any duty or requirement under the Health and Safety at Work Act and other relevant legislation and Codes of Practice.

We aim at providing safe and healthy working conditions for our employees and to ensure that work done by our employee does not adversely affect the health and safety of our clients, their employees, other contractors or members of the public.

We will consult with and inform our employees fully on all health and safety matters, provide all relevant information to improve safety standards and provide necessary training or ‘update’ training in respect of risks to their Health and Safety which may arise out of their work or at their workplace.

It is our Policy to fully determine the hazards to Health and Safety in undertaking the work of this Company and to develop risk assessments, in order to take the necessary precautions to ensure a safe and healthy working environment.

We will consult with individual employees before giving them particular Health and Safety responsibilities as we require the full support of all persons within the Company in order for this Safety Policy to be implemented. Neglect or breach of statutory Health and Safety legislation is considered a serious disciplinary matter and may result in criminal prosecution of the Company and/or the employee with heavy penalties upon conviction.

There is equally a clear legal duty on every employee to take reasonable care in order to protect not only their personnel with respect to Health and Safety but also any other persons who may be affected by his or her acts or omissions while at work. Additionally, every employee has a duty to co-operate with the Company in so far as it is necessary to achieve these objectives by assisting the Company to meet its statutory obligations.

This policy will be reviewed annually, or whenever necessary to comply with changes in legislation or Company Policy. This Company employs an independent external safety consultant who provides safety advisory and monitoring services.

The Company has a good Health and Safety record but we ask every employee to co-operate fully with our safety advisers and us so that wherever possible our standards may be improved.
