Health and Safety Policy

All health and Safety Policies are communicated to all staff members during the initial safety inductions held for all employees by the HSEQ Manager.

All site operations and offices have the current polices and communications boards in all staff meeting rooms and welfare cribs, the communications boards informs all personnel of any issues or other events that may affect their working areas.

As per our BS OHSAS 18001 Management System 1.1.7 Consultation, Communication and Reporting Employees shall be consulted on HSE issues through company and site inductions as well as weekly tool box talks (SKY-HSE-F11) and safety meetings. This consultation shall be documented and recorded by the appropriate staff and shall be made available to interested parties. The company shall ensure that the appropriate level of skill, competency or training is available to staff involved with HSE management issues.

All communication meetings and reports are submitted to our HSEQ Manager and also the relevant Project Management Group members for comment. The communication reports are then placed within the Safety Management system and filled.

Externally we are audited once every month by Safety Scotland who reports back directly to the Managing Director. This is to ensure that all systems including all site communications are correct and in place as per our Safety Management Systems and Construction Safety Phase Plans.
