Health & Safety

Documentation for safe working

Introduction

 

Northwick is committed to identifying and managing health and safety risks, meeting legislative requirements and achieving best practice standards. We do this by:

  • Recognising the value and importance of our people and ensuring we all play a part in creating a safe and healthy working environment for ourselves, those we work with, and the public.
  • Establishing an environment and culture that drives the prevention of injury and ill health.
  • Providing our people with the right balance of knowledge, understanding and skills to enable all work to be carried out safely.
  • Providing a clear and effective health and safety management system and delivering against challenging targets.
  • Continuously improving our health and safety culture and performance.

We recognise that the benefits of good safety management are:

  • Safety for administration staff, directly employed site operatives, sub-contractors, the self-employed and the general public
  • Reduced number of accidents and ill-health
  • Protection of our best interests and reputation
  • Compliance with legal duties
  • Happier, better-motivated staff
  • Greater operating efficiency.

If we fail to manage health and safety correctly the result could be:

  • Injuries and ill-health to administration staff, employed site operatives, sub-contractors, the self- employed and the general public
  • Loss of business through interruptions/bad publicity
  • Time spent investigating accidents instead of working towards our goals
  • Disruption of our activities through absence following injury or as a result of ill health
  • Disruption of our activities through defending claims and criminal actions
  • Increased insurance premiums
  • Feelings of personal guilt
  • Criminal prosecution by enforcing authority
  • Fines, imprisonment or other penalties imposed by a court of law.

As stated in the Health & Safety Act 1974 everybody has a responsibility to protect the health and safety of themselves and others when carrying out any activity.

Please take a few minutes to familiarise yourself with our health and safety documentation.
