We firmly believe that adequate provisions for health and safety are essential to working life. The maintenance of healthy and safe working conditions and the prevention of injuries and losses are not only of vital importance to the Company’s efficiency and success, but also in the best interests of all our employees and their families.
We therefore aim to:
- Ensure that all employees are fully aware of their responsibility for safety and of the safety rules which are relevant to their own jobs provide up to date information about health and safety issues at work.
Safety do’s and don’ts
The list of safety rules set out below is not exhaustive and is intended for general guidance only. Some rules will be explained to you by your line manager or by an experienced employee. If you are unsure about health and safety issues don’t be afraid to ask.
Accidents – first aid
Any injury requiring treatment should be dealt with by one of the company’s trained first-aiders. Names of qualified first aiders are posted on all notice boards and first aid boxes.
If no first aider is available in your area report to your line manager.
You should report any accident, however minor to your line manager who will ensure that all reported accidents are entered in the Accident Book. In the event of a serious or notifiable accident or dangerous occurrence, it is essential that the Company Safety Officer (Tom White) is advised as soon as possible, in order that suitable action is taken.
In case of fire
Rules concerning fire evacuation are posted on the notice board in your department.
