We are committed to securing the safety of all. We will provide the necessary resources, structures and procedures that are required to safeguard against the risks arising from activities in our workplace and to create a workplace that is, in so far as is reasonably practicable, safe and without risk to health. We also undertake to provide relevant information, appropriate training and adequate supervision, in a form, manner and, as appropriate, language, that is reasonably likely to be understood to achieve this.
We will provide safe plant and equipment, safe means of access and egress, safe systems of work, appropriate welfare facilities and emergency plans, competent persons and suitable protective clothing and equipment where hazards cannot be eliminated.

Employees with specific responsibilities for Safety, Health and Welfare must properly delegate these in their absence. All employees who authorise work must ensure the safety, Health and Welfare of all persons involved, directly or indirectly. We will not tolerate improper conduct which is likely to put any persons safety and health at risk.
We also undertake to consult all employees on matters of health and safety and everybody is hereby encouraged to comply with their duties under the 2005 Act by notifying Darren Keadin of any hazards which they identify in the workplace and reminded of their duties in relation to Safety, Health & Welfare, i.e it is your own personal responsibility to avoid injury to yourself and others working in your environment.
We undertake to seek appropriate advice from competent Safety and Health Consultants as and when necessary to ensure that we fully comply with all Laws and Regulations that apply to us.. We will strive to continuously improve our safety and health performance year on year.
Our main objective is to provide a safe and healthy workplace for our employees and to meet our duties in relation to clients/customers, contractors, visitors, members of the public or any other persons who may be affected by our operations.
