ABOUT US ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT SYSTEM HEALTH & SAFETY POLICY

Policy Statement

It is the policy of ATMOSS Ltd. to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health, safety and welfare of our employees whilst they are at work, and also the health and safety of temporary workers, plus any others who may be affected by our undertakings.

It is our intention to provide a safe and healthy work environment for all employees and to provide a safety conscious approach to our customers in order to achieve an accident-free workplace.

ATMOSS Ltd will endeavour to:

  • Provide and maintain safe working environments without risk to health and safety
  • Set standards that comply with all relevant statutory requirements relating to health, safety and the environment with regard to their effect on employees, customers, contractors and the public
  • Safeguard employees and others from foreseeable hazards with regard to health, safety or the environment in existing processes and working systems
  • Ensure that when new substances, plant, machinery, equipment, processes or premises are introduced, adequate guidance, instruction and supervision will be provided for safe methods of work to be developed
  • Ensure all employees are aware of their own responsibilities in respect of relevant health, safety and environmental matters
  • Aim to achieve the commitment and active involvement of all staff, in order that safety awareness and positive attitudes are fostered and continuous efforts made to improve safety performance
  • Ensure that our contractors carrying out work are informed of relevant standards; are trained in procedures as necessary; and that systems are established for monitoring compliance, without detracting from the contractors legal responsibilities, to ensure that requirements are met
  • Co-operate with our customers, other contractors operating on site, appropriate authorities and technical organisations, both to ensure that our policies are adhered to and to contribute to the formulation of a  standard means of compliance
  • Retain, and review as necessary, existing arrangements for safety committees to maintain effective consideration of health and safety measures
  • Ensure that these objectives are being fulfilled through auditing activities, both internally through competent assessors and also by external providers

We will achieve the above objectives by educating workers in, but not limited to, the following safety policies:

  • Hazard identification, assessment of risk and implementation of control strategies
  • Fire Safety
  • Business Continuity
  • Environmental management

This policy will be reviewed on an annual basis to take account of changes in circumstances or legal requirements.
