Safety, Health and Environmental Policy
The Health and Safety at Work Act, 1974 imposes general duties on every employer to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the Health, Safety and Welfare at work of all employees. At the same time it also places duties on employees to take reasonable care for their own Health and Safety and that of others who may be affected by their acts or omissions at work.
The principal aim of our Safety, Health & Environment Policy is to prevent accidents which result in:
the injury or ill health of any person;
damage to or destruction of property;
the cessation of operations;
a detrimental effect on our efficiency or prestige.
In addition, it is our clear intention to develop and market cleaner and safer technologies for more efficient use of energy and raw materials, and for reduction of pollution and waste at source.
I place the highest priority on the proper management and implementation of Safety, Health & Environment controls in all business activities, whether in operations in London, in the Technology Centre or on site. It is essential that we take and maintain a proactive approach to safety, health and the environment, and I require all employees to take an active interest in matters which affect not only their own environment, health, safety and welfare, but also that of others who may be affected by their activities.
