It is the policy of ML Construction to comply with the terms of the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005 and subsequent legislation and to provide and maintain a healthy and safe working environment. ML Construction health and safety objective is to minimise the number of instances of occupational accidents and illnesses and ultimately to achieve an accident-free workplace.
All employees will be provided with such equipment, information, training and supervision as is necessary to implement the policy and achieve the stated objective.
The management of ML Construction recognise and accept their duty to protect the health and safety of all visitors to the premises, including contractors and temporary workers, as well as any members of the public who might be affected by their work.
While the management of ML Construction will do all that is within their power to ensure the health and safety of its employees, it is recognised that health and safety at work is the responsibility of each and every individual associated with ML Construction. 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 ML Construction 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 immediate supervisor or the Safety Officer. An effective health and 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 the Safety Officer or a delegated representative. Accident records are crucial to the effective monitoring and revision of the policy and must therefore be accurate and comprehensive.
ML Construction health and safety policy will be continually monitored and updated, particularly when changes in the scale and nature of their operations occur,
The specific arrangements for the implementation of this policy and the personnel responsible are detailed below.
