HEALTH & SAFETY POLICY STATEMENT
Health and Safety of all Training 2000 Employees and Learners is of prime importance to the wellbeing of the Company.
- It is my aim to make the Company a safe place in which to Learn and work. I believe that we can achieve this by agreeing standards both for individuals and the Company as a whole, by the allocation of adequate resources and by encouraging effort and commitment to this end.
- Substantial and continual improvement of our Safety performance will be demonstrated through the maintenance of our benchmark standard, BSOHSAS18001.
- I make it clear to managers, leaders and all employees, including our learners that the priority given to Health and Safety performance shall rank at least equal to that afforded to all our Strategic Objectives.
- Health and Safety performance sits well within all our Core Values.
- My objective is a strong commitment to Health and Safety. The company’s main objective is be the prevention of any injury or ill health caused by our activities. I will ensure continual improvement in the management and performance of Occupational Health and Safety, consequently minimising the possibility of any liability. We shall maintain safe systems of work, including safe plant, equipment and methods of working both on and off our premises.
- I recognise that in order to maintain a strong, healthy business the Company will do all it practicably can to improve and assist the health of its staff through provision of a wellbeing programme which is benchmarked against the “Investors in People” wellbeing standard.
- I also fully accept our special responsibility for learners and for other persons who may be affected by our activities. We discharge this responsibility additionally through our Child Protection Policies. The Company will take all reasonably practicable steps to ensure that our statutory duties are met at all times.
- The Company is committed to ensure that learners are entitled to learning that takes place in a safe, healthy and supportive environment. We also consider that safe learning and working are essential to maximise their experience and achievement. Our policy is to adopt a ‘best practice’ role with regard to the promotion of health and safety.
The company will:
- Fully meet and wherever possible exceed all our legal requirements, any other requirements to which we subscribe and meet our ‘duty of care’ to staff and learners, including responsibilities for Child Protection, Safeguarding and prevent duty.
- Seek assurance that we have suitable and sufficient arrangements for learner health and safety.
- Take appropriate action where expected standards are not met or maintained.
- Promote the raising of standards for learner health and safety through support, and challenge, as appropriate.
Responsibility for Health and Safety rests with everyone including our employers, sub-contractors, employees, learners and clients. We must all co-operate with each other to enable all statutory duties are complied with. The company is strongly committed to providing employees, learners and any interested parties with systems, processes and meetings which allow open consultation and communication on health and safety matters. The successful implementation of our policies requires total commitment from all levels. Health and Safety is an integral part of all functions and activities. All employees and learners receive appropriate training to achieve a high level of awareness, motivation and knowledge. Elements that are identified as safety critical are routinely revalidated to ensure that competency is maintained. Employees and learners are informed of any hazards to health or safety which may be inherent in the workplace.
Systems are in place to set objectives and review our performance which meet the requirements of BSOHSAS18001. From March 2018 we are committing to transition from BSOHSAS18001 to the new international standard ISO45001 within 3 years.
This policy statement, the Company Health and Safety infrastructure and its subsequent arrangements, which are detailed within our electronic Health and Safety management system, shall be reviewed regularly to ensure that it reflects changing needs and circumstances and is kept up-to-date. Its effectiveness shall be monitored and acted upon by leaders in the workplace and by the HSE representatives at Company level.
