Health & Safety
1. COMPANY SAFETY POLICY
1.1.1 G Wilton Limited is committed to achieving significant and major improvement in performance towards better standards in every aspect of the business. Proper attention to health, safety and welfare is an indispensable part of this commitment. We believe that injuries, occupational illness and damage to property can be prevented.
1.1.2 G Wilton Limited recognizes the importance of providing a working environment, which is safe and healthy for all employees, contractors and members of the public and undertakes to comply with relevant legal requirements. We have determination and drive to bring about safe working practices in all company activities and to see that such persons are not harmed by our activities or working practices.
1.1.3 It is acknowledged that it is the responsibility of the Company to provide the right circumstances under which work can be carried out safely. In particular, the Company undertakes to provide and maintain safe plant and equipment, safe premises and safe systems of work. The Company will provide information, instruction, training and supervision in safety matters to all employees in order to achieve these objectives. However, all employees and contractors also have a legal duty not only to work safely, but to co-operate with the employer in his/her efforts to create safe working conditions. Employees will therefore be encouraged to participate in all safety matters to identify hazards which may exist and to report any condition which may appear dangerous or unhealthy and to ensure that each employee accepts his/her own responsibility not to endanger himself/herself or others and/or actively assist in fulfilling the requirements and spirit of the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974.
1.1.4 Whilst the final responsibility for matters of Health and Safety rests with the Company, all employees and visitors to the premises must clearly understand that they also have a duty under this Act, to ensure the Health and Safety of themselves and others. This includes reporting back to their Managers any dangerous or unsatisfactory condition and making suggestions for the improvement of existing facilities and arrangements.
1.1.5 All members of the Company who authorize work to be carried out by others, must ensure the Health and Safety of all persons involved directly or indirectly. All Regulations applicable and in addition to the Construction (Design & Management) Regulations 2007 shall be adhered to.
1.1.6 The Board hereby gives full backing to this policy and will support all who implement it.
