HEALTH AND SAFETY STATEMENT
Purpose of our OHS Statement:
To ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health, safety and welfare of our Employees while they are at work and of others who may be affected by their undertakings, and to comply with all the relevant legislation.
We recognise that safety is the responsibility of everyone and is not just a function of management. Employees will have specific duties and responsibilities to comply with the letter and spirit of the policy. Employees have specific responsibilities to take reasonable care of themselves and others that could be affected by their activities and to co-operate to achieve the standards required.
Security One 2 One will, in consultation with our Employees and their representatives, set out in writing a commitment to ensure that our Health and Safety policy will be:
Specific to Security One 2 One and appropriate to the nature of our activities;
Concise, clearly written, dated and made effective by the signature of the Managing Director;
Communicated and readily accessible to all persons at their place of work;
Reviewed for continuing suitability;
And made available to relevant external interested parties, as appropriate.
To make certain the principles of health and safety are clearly understood throughout Security One 2 One, we will be committed to:
Ensuring that there are arrangements put into place for the effective planning, development and review of this health and safety policy;
Ensuring that appropriate systems are developed and maintained for the effective communication of health and safety matters throughout Security One 2 One;
Protecting the safety and health of all Employees within Security One 2 One by preventing work-related injuries, ill health, disease and incidents;
Complying with relevant health and safety laws and regulations, voluntary programmes, collective agreements on health and safety and other requirements to which Security One 2 One subscribes;
Ensuring that Employees and their representatives are consulted and encouraged to participate actively in all elements of the Health and Safety Management System;
Continually improving the performance of the Health and Safety Management System;
provide the necessary information, instruction and training to Employees and others, including temporary Employees to ensure their competence with respect to health and safety;
Devote the necessary resources in the form of finance, equipment, personnel and time to ensure the health and safety of Employees. Expert help will be sought where the necessary skills are not available within Security One 2 One;
Liaise and work with all necessary persons to ensure health and safety, and will also ensure that adequate arrangements are also in place for ensuring the health and safety of visitors.
OHS Implementation in our Company:
Management and Supervisory staff of Security One 2 One has the responsibility for implementing this policy and must ensure that Health and Safety considerations are always given priority in planning and day-to-day supervision of work.
All employees and Sub-Contractors of Security One 2 One are expected to co-operate with the Management and Supervisory staff in carrying out this policy and must ensure that their own work, insofar as is reasonably practicable, is carried out without risk to themselves or others.
All employees of Security One 2 One are reminded of their personal legal responsibilities and requirement to do everything reasonably possible to prevent injury to themselves and to others.
It is both welcome and crucial that all Security One 2 One staff maintain an effective, efficient and responsible attitude to health and safety and continue to contribute their observations and recommendations.
To implement our OHS policy we will:
Identify and assess all risks, and the necessary actions for their elimination or adequate control.
Establish, maintain and develop arrangements for the effective consultation on health and safety.
Comply with the statutory requirements as a minimum standard for health, safety and welfare of employees at work, and all others toward whom the Company has statutory obligations.
Ensure that effective arrangements exist to deal with any reasonably foreseeable large-scale emergency, which can be controlled or mitigated by the company.
Ensure that the responsibilities of management are clearly assigned at all levels and that their roles are clearly defined.
Recognise the link between efficiency and the safety and health, and to minimise the costs, losses and disruption, which arises from accidents, ill health and dangerous occurrences.
Ensure that employees are aware that they are required to work safely and to co-operate in all matters, which affect their health and safety.
This policy will be continually reviewed and amended by Managerial staff as and when required by law, changes of structure within Security One 2 One affecting its size or nature of business, as dictated by site environments or to conform to the requirements of clients.
The Safety Information in this policy does not take precedence over NSW OH&S Regulations. All Employees should be familiar with the NSW OH&S Acts & Regulations.
