It is essential for management and employees to be actively involved to achieve these objectives.
It is the policy of the Management that work is to be carried out in a safe manner, and that occupational Health and Safety is to be regarded as a prerequisite in all operations. The Company attaches great importance to the principle that successful Health and Safety management contributes to successful business management.
To ensure that this policy is effectively enforced each Site Manager in conjunction with the Safety officer on site is responsible tor the formulation of comprehensive procedures in respect of: Health and Safety at work, appropriate to their activities, and for dealing individual and collective responsibilities throughout the management structure.
The responsibility for Health and Safety planning rests with Management in consultation with SHE Management Consultants whom, in turn, is accountable to the Board of Directors. The effective implementation and operation of these policies is kept under continual review by Management, who receives information from the Safety ofﬁcer concerning accidents, dangerous occurrences and overall safety performance.
A vital part of this process is the reporting, analysis and corrective measures resulting from reported incidents or ‘near misses’. There is a direct correlation between the number of near misses, accidents and lost time incidents. In order to manage Health and Safety effectively, data at all levels is collected.
Within the framework provided by these policies, all employees have a part to play in maintaining the highest standards of Health and Safety an in achieving full compliance with legal requirements, which is regarded as minimum standards. The basic need is for every employee to take care of him or herself, colleagues and the general public.
