The Company acknowledges it has statutory duties and Mr Michael Seber has the functional responsibility for both the implementation and day to day management of this policy and its safety arrangements.
It is Company policy to operate and perform work in the safest practicable manner, consistent with legislation and good practice, whenever and wherever possible.

Employees are required to read the obligations placed upon them by this policy and escalate any issues to the Director they are unsure about.
This policy will be reviewed and revised annually to take account of legislation or organisational change and all such changes will be communicated to employees.
