It is the policy of Saascoms to take all reasonable steps to ensure the health, safety and welfare of its employees, and it will, so far as is reasonably practicable, establish procedures and systems necessary to implement such a policy. Saascoms are committed to at least comply, and where possible exceed, legal and other requirements to which the company subscribes that relate to occupational health and safety hazards.
Saascoms will provide and maintain a healthy and safe working environment with the objective of preventing injury and ill health and continually improving health and safety management and performance.
All employees will be provided with information, instructions, training and supervision as is necessary to achieve health and safety objectives. This will be made available to all employees, contractors and other interested parties.
Saascoms also recognises its duty to protect the health and safety of all visitors to the Company, including contractors and temporary workers, as well as any members of the public who might be affected by work operations.
Saascoms will take all reasonable steps to ensure the health and safety of its employees, health and safety at work is also the responsibility of the employees. It is the duty of each employee and contractor to take reasonable care of their own and other people’s welfare and to report any situation, which may pose a threat to the well-being of themselves or of any other person. If an employee or contractor is unsure how to perform a certain task or feels it would be dangerous to perform a specific job, then it is their duty to report this to the Director responsible for Safety. An effective health and safety programme requires continuous communication between workers at all levels. Therefore, we provide:
- A safe system of work and safe plant and equipment
- Safe means of handling, transporting articles, substances and people
- Adequate training, instruction, information and supervision
- A safe place of work with safe access and egress
- A safe and healthy environment and adequate welfare facilities
- Communication and participation of workers, across the organisation;
- A commitment to satisfying legal and other requirements;
- A commitment to the hierarchy of controls to Health and Safety Risks
- A commitment to the prevention of ill health and injury
All injuries, however small or slight, sustained by a person at work must be reported. Accident records are crucial to the effective monitoring and revision of the policy and must therefore be accurate and comprehensive. An accident book is located in the workshop. A review of the accident books will be undertaken every quarter.
This Health and Safety Policy will be reviewed for continuing suitability.
