HEALTH AND SAFETY POLICY

Detailed below is an outline of Purvis Marquees policy towards health & safety.

The Health & Safety at Work Etc. Act 1974 imposes a statutory duty on employers to ensure, in as far as is reasonably practicable, the health, safety and welfare of their employees whilst at work. This duty also extends to others who may be affected by that work.

Employees also have a statutory duty to take care of themselves and others who may be affected by their acts or omissions.

To enable these duties to be carried out, it is our intent to ensure that responsibilities for health and safety matters are effectively assigned, accepted and fulfilled at all levels within our organisational structure.

We will, in as far as is reasonably practicable, ensure that:

  • Adequate resources are provided to ensure that proper provision can be made for health & safety.

  • Risk assessments are carried out and periodically reviewed.

  • Systems of work are provided and maintained that are safe and without risks to health.

  • Arrangements for the use, handling, storage and transport of articles and substances for use at work are safe and without risks to health & safety.

  • All employees are provided with such information, instruction and supervision as is necessary to secure their health and safety at work and the safety of others who may be affected by their action.

  • Where appropriate, health surveillance will be provided to employees.

  • The provision and maintenance of all plant, machinery and equipment is safe and without risk to health.

  • The working environment of all employees is safe and without risk to health and that adequate provision is made with regard to the facilities and arrangements for their welfare at work.

  • The place of work is safe and there is safe access to and egress from the work place.

  • Monitoring activities are undertaken to maintain agreed standards.

It is the duty of all employees at work:

  • To take reasonable care for the health and safety of themselves and of other persons who may be affected by their acts or omissions at work and co-operate with us in fulfilling our statutory duties.

  • Not to interfere with or misuse anything provided in the interest of health and safety.

General:

  • This Health & Safety Policy will be reviewed at least annually, amended and updated as and when necessary. Communication of any such changes will be made to all employees.

  • There are established and maintained effective procedures for consultation and communication between all levels of management and employees on all matters relating to health, safety and welfare.
