Communicate and consult with our staff on all issues affecting their health and safety and, in doing so, bring this policy to their attention.

Provide adequate training for our staff to enable them to work safely and effectively, and to ensure they are competent and confident in the work they carry out.

Carry out and regularly review risk assessments to identify hazards and existing control measures. We will prioritise, plan, and complete any corrective actions required to reduce risk to an acceptable level.

Maintain our premises and work equipment to a standard that ensures that risks are effectively managed.

Ensure that responsibilities for Health and Safety are allocated, understood, monitored, and fulfilled.

Co-operate with other organisations (suppliers and customers) to ensure that they are aware of any risks to their staff and other people posed by our activities, that we are aware of any risks to our staff from their activities, and that we comply with the relevant requirements of fire legislation.

It is the duty of all of us when at work:

  • To take reasonable care of our own safety
  • To take reasonable care of the safety of others who may be affected by what we do or fail to do
  • To co-operate so that we can comply with our legal duties
