Occupational Health and Safety Policy
Our mission is to globally deliver our expertise through innovative designs of quality products and customer satisfaction, whilst ensuring a safe lifting and working environment for all.
The Managing Director has overall responsibility for health and safety throughout our organisation, this includes our customers, employee’s, visitors and contractors.
In this role, the Managing Director oversees, implements and monitors health and safety procedures and reports back to the Board on health and safety matters.
The Managing Director, in-conjunction with Senior Management, organises risk assessments and regular inspections of the workplace and working practises. Ensuring that respective departments are maintaining required safety records and investigating and reporting on any accidents at work.
Safety training is an integral part of an effective health and safety programme and it is essential that every employee is trained to perform their job safely and competently. Consequently ALL employees will be trained via both formal and informal means in safe working practices and procedures. Training will include instruction on the safe use of any equipment provided.
The primary legislation governing this OH&S policy and our company operations is the Health & Safety at Work Act 1974. This policy provides a framework for setting OH&S objectives and key performance indicators.
All significant OH&S legislation relating to company operations is listed and built in to our Business Management System [BMS]. We review performance periodically to evaluate compliance, as an input to management review.
Our Business Management System is focused to comply with the requirements of
BS OHSAS 18001 (ISO 45001 as it evolves)
A culture of safety and proactive management of OH&S arrangements, is reinforced by a total commitment to sustained and continual improvement stemming from the Board.
This policy is displayed on our company website. A signed copy of our more comprehensive Hi Level OH&S Policy, in the HSE recommended format, is available to interested parties upon request.
This policy is fully communicated internally, supported by internal training programmes. All employee’s understand, are conversant with and actively support its intentions. If anyone has any concerns relating to occupational health & safety, at any time, they are immediately encouraged to raise them directly with the designated management (OH&S) representative [QuEnSh Manager], who reports to the Board of Directors.
