SHEF POLICY & MANAGEMENT MANUAL
Statement of Safety Health Environment and Fire (SHEF)Policy
It is the policy of All Floors Services Ltd to comply with the terms of the Health & Safety at Work, Act 1974 and subsequent legislation and to provide and maintain a healthy and safe working environment. All Floor's Health & Safety objective is to minimise the number of instances of occupational accidents and illnesses and ultimately to achieve an accident-free, healthy, safe workplace. Our long term, medium term and short-term SHEF objectives are detailed in our SHEF Action Plan.
This policy statement and our procedures are integrated and involves in addition to health and safety, our environmental and fire responsibilities as we see them as an integral part of our integrated approach to SHEF at work.
All employees will be provided with such equipment, information, training and supervision as necessary to implement the policy and achieve the stated objective.
All Floors Services Ltd recognises and accepts its duty to protect the Health & Safety of all visitors to the organisation, including contractors and temporary workers, as well as any members of the public who might be affected by its operations.
While the management of All Floors Services Ltd will do all that is within its powers to ensure the Health & Safety of its employees, it is recognised that Health & Safety at work is the responsibility of each and every individual associated with the organisation.
It is the duty of each employee to take reasonable care of their own and other people's welfare and to report any situation which may pose a threat to the well being of any other person.
The-management of All Floors Services Ltd will provide every employee with the 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.
An effective Health & Safety programme requires continuous communication between workers at all levels. It is therefore every worker's responsibility to report immediately any situation, which could jeopardise the well being of themselves or any other person.
All injuries, however small, sustained by a person at work must be reported to their supervisor.
Accident records are crucial to the effective monitoring and revision of the policy and must therefore be accurate and comprehensive.
All Floor's Health & Safety policy will be adequately resourced, continually monitored and updated, particularly when changes in the scale and nature of our operations occur. The policy will be reviewed at least every 12months.
The specific arrangements for the implementation of the policy and the personnel responsible, are detailed in our Safety, Health, Environment & Fire(SHEF)Management Manual.
