Health & Safety
Health and Safety affects all aspects of your work. The Health & Safety at Work Act 1974 states that we need to ensure your health, safety and welfare while you are at work. You also have a responsibility to take care of your own health and safety and of others that you work with.
To ensure this takes place the following factors need to be considered:
Policies, procedures, guidance, hazards, risks, control methods, safe systems of work, accident reporting, investigations, health and safety monitoring and reviews.
You are a key part in all of the above. We encourage your participation and feedback to ensure all aspects of health and safety in the workplace is covered.
Please ensure that you are aware of your specific health and safety responsibilities. Please discuss this with your line manager.
