Health & Safety

approach

Safeguarding the health, safety and welfare of our staff at work and members of the local community is of paramount importance, and we strive to provide working environments which are safe and without risk to health.

Preventing Work-related Illness


We do whatever is reasonably practical to prevent work-related illness. So, we:

  • have implemented a health and safety management system.

  • assess the risks associated with a particular job or role, and reduce them through the appropriate control measures.

  • have developed safe working practices, providing employees with appropriate information, instruction and training.

  • provide Personal Protective Equipment and training in its use.

  • routinely monitor health and safety management activities.

  • carry out pre-employment screening to help ensure that people are not placed in roles that will aggravate existing or past conditions.

  • have access to reliable medical advice on occupational health.

  • conduct workstation assessments including DSE training and eye tests for those using computers.

  • carry out health surveillance to identify early health problems.

  • take a zero-tolerance approach to the misuse of drugs and alcohol.

  • conduct environmental surveys of office and sites to ensure hygiene and safety.

  • ensure the provision of qualified First Aid Staff and facilities.
