HEALTH AND SAFETY POLICY STATEMENT

 

CJC Contractors Limited (CJC) is committed to maintaining and improving, where possible, the health, welfare and safety of its employees/ sub contractors and ensuring the safety of all other persons who may be affected by the Company's work activities.

 

Introduction

 

As Director I am ultimately accountable for Health and Safety.  I am committed to providing the resources, training and systems of work to ensure that all work activities are undertaken by competent employees or sub-contractors in a safe manner.  These systems recognise the requirements to safeguard the Health and Safety of CJC’s employees, sub contractors, clients, other contractors and the public where affected by their activities.

 

In making this commitment I recognise the requirement to comply with statutory safety legislation and the Client's Health and Safety specifications, rules and procedures. CJC will comply with the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974 and associated Regulations, in particular the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007 and the Working at Height Regulations 2005

 

As Director, I will ensure that all the foreseeable risks are identified, assessed and managed.  Risk assessments will address the risks associated with undertaking work on sites and client premises.

 

Organisation and Responsibilities

 

CJC has established daily informal, internal communications to ensure employee and sub- contractors co-operation and understanding of their roles and responsibilities. As Director I am responsible for the administration of the Company safety management system, maintenance of records and document control, the organisation of contracts and all associated Health and Safety arrangements.

 

The identification of the specific hazards, assessment of risks, identification of the necessary management controls is a prime responsibility and is supported by effective planning to implement the controls and monitor performance.

 

All employee and sub-contractors are required to co-operate with CJC in its endeavours to maintain and improve Health and Safety and comply with safety legislation.

 

Management of Health and Safety

 

CJC has identified the generic risks associated with its activities, which include painting, and general repairs.  I am responsible for ensuring that employees and sub-contractors are competent to undertake the work through the provision of training and regular discussions on safety performance. They must have an understanding of Method Statement requirements and the supporting procedures and instructions.  To assist me, the support of a professional Safety Consultant, McCormack Benson Health and Safety, has been procured.

 

Safety procedures and work instructions have been established to control the foreseeable risks and safety requirements associated with the work places. Plant, equipment, materials and substances will be stored and transported in a safe manner.

 

This Policy will be reviewed annually to ensure that it remains relevant and effective in achieving the Company's Health and Safety objectives.
