It is the policy of Blitz Rigging to develop a positive health and safety culture throughout the organisation because we believe that high standards of health and safety are necessary for company efficiency and competitiveness.
To achieve this the company will continually strive to identify all workplace hazards and take appropriate measures to eliminate or control risks to employees and others affected by our operations by applying positive control standards and provision of information, training and supervision as needed.
Employees at all levels are reminded that they have a duty, commensurate with their position, to ensure that the company's health and safety policy is observed. In particular they are required:-
To take reasonable care for their own health and safety at work and of those who may be affected by their actions, or by their omissions.
To co-operate with their employer to ensure that any duty, or requirement, for health and safety imposed upon their employer by law is performed or complied with.
To co-operate with any other holder of health and safety duties (such as contractors or other employers working at our premises, and other employers when you are working at their workplaces) as far as is necessary to enable them to perform their duties.
Not to intentionally, or recklessly, interfere with or misuse anything provided in the interests of health, safety or welfare.
To report to supervisory staff hazardous conditions or defects in the company safety arrangements.
The company recognises that it has the ultimate legal responsibility for health and safety. Accordingly the Managing Director accepts overall responsibility for policy formulation and implementation. In turn all levels of management and all supervisors are responsible for carrying out those health and safety duties placed upon them. The Managing Director will ensure that the safety plan includes sufficient resources for the successful implementation of the Health and Safety Management Policy.
Development of the Health and Safety Management Policy will be conducted through normal business meetings where health and safety will be given standing equal to other activities of the business.
The company will appoint a number of competent persons to assist the company directors in implementing this policy. The Safety Officer's role is to provide independent and authoritative advice to managers with individual responsibilities for health and safety.
