Health & Safety

The policy of George Beattie & Sons Ltd is to promote the highest practical standards of safety, health and welfare in the performance of our works activities.

We recognise health and safety issues as an integral part of our business performance and are committed to the prevention of injury and ill health, maintaining continual and effective improvements and complying with applicable legal requirements.

We endeavour to make and maintain our offices and site establishments as healthy places in which to work and to avoid accidents to our employees, our property, third parties and their property.

The promotion of health and safety at work is a mutual objective for both employer and employee, and the responsibilities of management cannot be properly discharged without the active co-operation of all employees.

The Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974 and other Regulations impose statutory duties on employers and employees and it is our policy to ensure that the responsibilities for health and safety are properly assigned, accepted and fulfilled.

Practical steps are taken to safeguard the health, safety and welfare of all employees, visitors, others on premises or operations under our control and others who may be affected by our activities.
These include, but are not limited to:

  • Provision and maintenance of Safe Systems of Work which include all machinery, equipment and appliances used by Employees.
  • Provision of adequate arrangements for the use, handling, storage and transport of articles and substances for use at work, which are safe and without risk to health,
  • Provision of such information, instruction, training and supervision to secure the health and safety at work of all employees and any other persons who may be affected by our activities.
  • Provision of a working environment of all employees and sub-Contractors that is safe and without risk to health and safety
  • Provision of adequate facilities and arrangements for the welfare at work all employees, Sub-contractors and visitors to our Sites and premises
  • Ensuring Company activities are carried out in such a way that persons not in our employment who may be affected are not exposed to risks to their health or safety,
  • Setting health and safety objectives on an annual basis

We consider that, for this policy to operate satisfactorily and to fulfil this aim, it is essential to have the full co-operation of all the employees of the Company.

It is the duty of every employee to:

  • Co-operate with management to enable the employer to carry out their legal duty under the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974,
  • Take reasonable precautions for the health and safety of themselves and of other persons who may be affected by their acts or omissions at work,
  • It is our firm belief that, by having a sound attitude to health and safety requirements, not only will the well being of the employees be assured but also the Company will ultimately be more efficient and thus more profitable.
