Health, Safety and Welfare Policy
Statement of General Policy
John Green Decor Limited (the “Company”) recognises that it has a statutory duty to provide a safe and healthy work place for its employees and subcontractors.
In order to carry out this duty the Company will, in so far as is reasonably practical, take appropriate action which will include the provision and maintenance of :-
– systems and methods of work that are safe and without risks to health;
– plant machinery and appliances;
– safe arrangements for the handling, storage and movement of equipment and materials;
– adequate information, instruction and training to employees to enable them to be aware of hazards and to work in a safe and healthy manner;
– adequate welfare facilities;
The Company will ensure, so far as is reasonably practical, that these provisions will be applied in respect of employees working at premises not owned or operated by the Company.
The Company will, as far as is reasonably practical, coordinate safe working practices with other organisations and individuals, on whose premises its employees are working.
The Proprietor has overall responsibility for Health, Safety and Welfare matters within the Company and for ensuring that this policy is reviewed, monitored and brought to the attention of all employees.
Employees and subcontractors are also responsible for taking care of their own health and safety and that of other persons while working for the Company and for informing their respective managers or representatives of organisations on whose premises they are working, of any hazards encountered during their work.
Identification of hazards
The overall responsibility for the identification of hazards within the workplace rests with the Proprietor. However each manager appointed to a project has the responsibility to carry out a survey of the work place and to carry out a risk assessment in order to identify and address any potential hazards.
It will be the responsibility of all employees and subcontractors working for the Company to identify any additional hazards encountered in the work place and to bring them to the attention of their managers or other responsible person.
Potential hazards identified by the Company will be brought to the attention of all staff and subcontractors working at the work place. When working on premises not owned by the Company, any hazards identified will also be reported to the responsible person concerned.
