ORGANISATIONAL CONTEXT

The Managing Director has accountability for the health and safety of the staff (workers) and those affected by their activities. The Managing Director contracts an external partner has a competent health and safety person.

 

Leaders have an appropriate knowledge of the legislative framework, best practice and the requirements of health and safety standards. The management team are responsible for the implementation of the occupational health and safety management system (OHSAS) and take full responsibility for its development and improvement.

Leaders are involved in the development of policies and processes, where required and are actively involved in ensuring they are implemented in the relevant parts of the organisation and are continuously reviewed and improved.

Leaders understand the links between the processes and their interaction. These allow us to deliver the plans for the business. We actively ensure they are fully implemented in a manner reflecting our values.

We ensure that adequate resources are available to ensure an effective OHSAS and communicate to interested parties the importance of our OHSAS.
