We are committed to the prevention of work-related injury and ill health and we shall comply with all health and safety legislation and other requirements that are applicable to our business. We shall do this by complying with the ISO 45001 management system standard which ensures that continual improvement is promoted within our health and safety management system. In doing so we shall ensure that hazards within our business are continually identified, managed, and eliminated where possible.
Where hazards cannot be eliminated we are committed to reducing the risks posed as far as is reasonably practicable. The identification of hazards shall cover specifically all machinery, vulnerable persons and general activities that occur in our workplace. Objectives and targets to work towards will be set by top management and which shall be reviewed and updated periodically.
Importantly, we shall ensure health and safety duties are clearly allocated to cover all areas of our business and that there is sufficient representation among the workforce. Consultation with, and the participation of, our workers on health and safety matters is considered vital to the management of our health and safety responsibilities.
General health and safety rules shall be established that are applicable and communicated to all persons undertaking work on our behalf. We also accept our responsibility for the health and safety of other people including visitors and contractors who may be affected by our activities.
The policy will be kept up-to-date and will be revised every year to ensure they remain relevant to our business, particularly as the business changes in nature and size.
