Health and Safety Policy

We take very seriously our obligations and responsibilities under Health and Safety legislation.  Our objective is to provide a safe working environment for all staff and other visitors, whether on our premises, on site or wherever we work.

Our Responsibilities
So far as is reasonably practicable we aim to achieve the following:

Employee Responsibilities
All team members are obliged to take reasonable care for their own safety and for the others who may be affected by their acts or omissions and to co-operate fully with us in the arrangements we make in relation to Health and Safety matters. 

For example, team members must apply their informed judgement to:

Safety Officer

We appoint a safety officer with responsibility to ensure that people are at all times aware of and fully comply with obligations under Health and Safety law. Until further notice, the company director, Matt Bargery, will act as the Safety Officer.

Training

Health and Safety guidance is given to all new team members during their induction and regular refresher sessions are held to ensure best practice is upheld at all times.

Evacuation

People should be familiar with the evacuation procedures when working from our company designated premises, details of which will be displayed throughout the building. Team members working remotely and on-site are also advised to ensure they are aware of the fire safety procedures of the environment in which they are working.

Should people discover a fire they should immediately sound the fire alarm and notify the senior staff member present.

First Aid

All accidents must be reported to the Safety Officer. If any person becomes ill or injured while at work and requires medical attention arrangements will be made to call a doctor or emergency services or take the employee to Accident & Emergency at the nearest hospital.

Hazards and Safety Risks

People have a responsibility to report any potential health or safety hazard to the Safety Officer. Examples are as follows:

Discipline

Any breach or non-observance of this Health and Safety policy constitutes a potential disciplinary offence. In such a case where a team member knowingly put others at risk, they may be dismissed.

Regular Review

We regularly review our working practices, including the general working environment and individuals’ workstations to ensure that best practices are adhered to or adopted and that safety hazards are identified, and accidents are avoided. 

Our stakeholders are encouraged to suggest improvements to our Health and Safety Policy and suggestions should be made to the Safety Officer.
