Under Section 2(3) of the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974 there is a requirement on all companies or organisations employing more than five (5) persons to have a written statement of general Health and Safety Policy.
This Health and Safety Policy must cover all Employees, explain the arrangements for carrying out the Policy, be revised as appropriate and explain how the statement and any revisions are brought to the attention of all Employees of CD Surveys Ltd.
The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 also require that Risk Assessments be undertaken.
The Risk Assessments are an integral part of the basis of the Policy as they form the basis of Health and Safety arrangements within an organisation.
This document is the general Health and Safety Policy of CD Surveys Ltd. and meets the statutory requirements outlined above.
It is the policy of CD Surveys Ltd. to ensure that, as far as reasonably practicable, Employees are provided with safe and healthy working conditions.
CD Surveys regards Health and Safety as being an important function of management at every level, with responsibility for the observance of safe working practices and good housekeeping standards resting firmly with the Director with Responsibility for Health and Safety and Employees alike.
In cooperation with Management, every Employee also has a legal duty under Regulations to observe safe standards and practices.
Therefore, a safe and healthy working environment can only be maintained with the cooperation of all those who work in it.
We are also a member of the Institute of Directors
