Health & Sefty Policy
It is the Policy of HSQE Consultancy Group of companies to comply with the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and related legislation which assists the business to provide and maintain a healthy and safe working environment for all employees, subcontractors, visitors, and all those who may be affected by the acts and omissions of the group undertaking. The group health and safety objective are set to minimise the number of instances of occupational accidents and illnesses to the lowest denominator and ultimately to achieve an accident-free workplace.
To achieve this HSQE Consultancy Group operate a health and safety management system (HSMS) that works towards the requirements of ISO 45001:2018, this forms part of a wider (IMS) integrated management system which includes that also works towards registration to ISO9001:2015 & ISO14001:2015 Standards, but as a minimum the safety management system is legally in line with management of health and safety HSG65.
All employees will be provided with such equipment, information, training, and supervision as is necessary to implement the policy and achieve the stated objective. The group recognises and accepts the duty to protect the health, safety, and wellbeing of all visitors, including contractors and temporary employees, as well as any members of the public who might be affected by our operations to the group of companies.
While the management will do all to ensure the health and safety of all employees, it is the duty of each employee to take reasonable care of their own safety and others. The Management of the group of companies will provide each employee under each business entity with the necessary adequate and sufficient training necessary to carry out their tasks safely. However, if an employee is unsure how to perform a certain task or feels it would be dangerous to perform a specific job then it is the employee’s duty to report this to their supervisor or the director of Safety.
To maintain the effective health and safety programme requires continuous communication between Employees at all levels, it is therefore every employee’s responsibility to report immediately any situation which could jeopardise the wellbeing of themselves or any other person. Injuries, however small, sustained by a person at work must be reported to the director of safety or a delegated representative. Accident records are crucial to the effective monitoring and revision of the policy and must therefore be accurate and comprehensive company health and safety policy will be continually monitored and updated, particularly when changes in the scale and nature of our operations occur. The policy will be reviewed and updated every 12 months unless legislative changes necessitate more frequent changes.
