Health & Safety

Health and SafetyBoth employer and individual employees have legal obligations to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, everyone's health, safety and welfare at work. The company has a duty of care towards its employees; however it is necessary that, as with any successful community, each individual takes a share of responsibility towards the group as a whole. The Health and Safety Policy outlines our commitment towards this.

The company will take all reasonable steps within its power to:

  • Comply with the requirements of the Health & Safety at Work Act (1974), associated regulations and any other relevant health and safety legislation.
  • Maintain safe access to a healthy and risk free work place.
  • Ensure plant and machinery are safe and that safe systems of work are set and followed.
  • Ensure that articles and substances are moved, stored and used safely.
  • Provide adequate welfare facilities.
  • Provide sufficient information, instruction, training and supervision to enable employees to avoid hazards and to contribute positively to the health and safety of everyone while at work.
  • Comply fully with the requirement for elected safety representatives and training to fulfil their functions.  Details of elected safety representatives will be displayed on notice boards.
  • Ensure employees are fully trained & competent
