HEALTH & SAFETY POLICYNew Heat Solutions

Overall and final responsibility for health and safety in New Heat Solutions LLP is that of Marcus Walgrove, the Managing Partner responsible for health and safety within the company.

The company will comply with the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, and other relevant legislation and meet the standards required to protect all of our contractors whilst at work and any person likely to be affected by our work operations.

The objective of this policy is to sustain high standards of health and safety performance throughout the company and detail the standards expected of contractors and sub-contractors who undertake work on its behalf.

Hazards will be identified, and the risk of injury, disease or dangerous occurrence will be minimised by the achievement and maintenance of high standards of health and safety. These standards will be attained, so far as is reasonably practicable by:

  • The provision of information, instruction, training and supervision such as is necessary to ensure the health, safety and welfare of contractors of the company.

  • Adequate arrangements for suitable and sufficient assessment of work activities in order to identify associated hazards and control the risks arising.

  • The provision and maintenance of safe access to and egress from any workplace under the control of the company plus safe systems of work.

  • The co-operation of contractors of the company to enable statutory obligations to be met.

  • A visible management commitment to higher standards of health and safety achieved through monitoring performance and the continuous improvement of the health and safety culture throughout the company.

  • The provision of first aid, fire prevention and control, welfare facilities and working environments that are, so far as is reasonable, without risk to health.

  • Arrangements for ensuring safety and the minimising of risks to health in connection with the use, handling, storage, transportation and disposal of articles and substances.

  • The provision of personal protective clothing and equipment deemed necessary as the result of a risk assessment.

  • The provision and maintenance of machinery, plant and systems of work that are safe and without risk.

The policy will be kept up to date, particularly as the business changes in nature and size. To ensure this, the policy and the way in which it is implemented will be reviewed at least annually.

Contractors and sub-contractors are aware that their support, as far as may be necessary, is vital to achieve the objectives of this Health and Safety Policy and the co-operation of contractors and sub-contractors in promoting safe, healthy conditions and systems of work is encouraged by discussion and effective joint consultation. Contractors and sub-contractors are not expected to carry out work that they consider to be unsafe; and neglect of health and safety requirements will be taken seriously and could give rise to disciplinary action.
