Health And Safety Management General Policy Statement

It is the intention of the company to operate in such a manner that our employees and other persons affected by our operations are not exposed to risks, that we carry out our legal duties and responsibilities in accordance with the company’s health and safety policy.
The companies Health and Safety Management procedures are fully compliant to statutory CDM regulations, legislation, Principal Contractor’s procedures and Local Authority regulations and form an integral part of our Quality Assurance Manual.
IIt is the preference of the company to employ a full time qualified Health and Safety Manager who advises on all Health and Safety matters. If the company does not have a full time Health and Safety Manager, a suitably qualified and experienced Health and Safety Consultant will be employed until a full time Health and Safety Manager can be recruited. We are members of the British Constructional and Steelwork Association who promote Health and Safety matters as part of their many services to members.
Our safety procedures and policies are reviewed and updated through regular consultation with the workforce and other interested parties.
The objective of the management of Elland Steel Structures Ltd is to provide:-
The responsibility for all Health and Safety matters within the company lies with the Managing Director, with day to day duties delegated to the Production Manager, Contracts Director and the HSQE Manager as well as other Directors and Managers as may be applicable.
Company Directors are allocated daily duties and responsibilities with regard to Health and Safety conformity, implementation, monitoring and bringing company policies to the notice of all our employees and sub-contractors.
If incidents are to be avoided, good working practices and good employee behaviour is essential. Therefore all managers shall familiarise themselves with their duties as detailed in the heath and safety manual, and all employees have a part to play if high standards are to be achieved and maintained. A great “near miss” reporting system is an essential tool in reducing accidents.
We have within our organisation nominated employees who are qualified First aiders to meet legislative requirements and their duties include the recording of any accidents/incidents reported.
Health and Safety policies and procedures are reviewed for their effectiveness and our off-site processes and procedures are carried out and controlled under conditions as laid down by our Health and Safety Management, Contractors, Local Authority Regulations and Government Legislation.
