The Company will also, so far as is reasonably practicable:

  • Promote a working Health & Safety culture within the Company through a co-operative effort at all levels.
  • Encourage employee participation and consultation in all safety matters and the discussion of safety, health and welfare matters between management and the workforce.
  • Promoting a common understanding of both the risks and the control measures required in order to eliminate, or control those risks.
  • Enforce the view that the neglect of safety and health requirements will be taken seriously and may lead to disciplinary action.
  • Regularly review the Policy in order to ensure that it remains a working document in light of changing legislation, inspection and audit reports, accident and incident reports, new plant, new substances, new working procedures and changes to personnel.
  • Make available adequate resources for the planning, provision and maintenance of safe working conditions and safe systems of work.
  • Ensure health & safety considerations are always given priority in planning and day to day supervision of work.

  • Ensure that contractors undertaking work for the Company are informed of the relevant standards required and are monitored to ensure compliance without detracting from the contractors' legal responsibilities to comply with statutory requirements.
  • Promote good health amongst employees and be concerned with the prevention of occupational and non-occupational disorders and diseases.
