Staying Safe – Statement
Millstar Construction Ltd is committed to ensuring the health, safety and welfare of its employees wherever they are working. We are also committed to protecting other people who might be affected by our activities. We will comply with the requirements of the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999, the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007 and other relevant legislation.
In particular, we will provide, so far as is reasonably practicable:
- A safe place of work
- A healthy working environment
- Equipment and systems of work that are safe
- Information that is relevant to what staff are doing that is easily understood
- Sufficient instruction, training and supervision to enable staff to work safely
- Sufficient resources to implement the policy
We acknowledge that a healthy and safe workplace requires the active involvement of everybody within the company and as a result everybody has specific responsibilities in this area. These are detailed in our Safety Policy Manual.
We also acknowledge the important part our staff have to play in ensuring a healthy and safe workplace and we will consult them both when we are taking specific measures which will affect their health and safety and also on a routine basis.
Our Safety Manual will be kept up to date and will be reviewed at least annually. However, if circumstances change, such as new types of work or a significant increase in the size of the business, it will be reviewed more frequently.
