Strategic Corrosion Management - Health and Safety Policy Statemen

Strategic Corrosion Management recognises and accepts its responsibilities as an employer for ensuring, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health, safety and welfare of our staff, contractors and work colleagues while at work, and of any other person who may be affected by what we do.

We recognise that effective health and safety management can contribute towards organisational performance by reducing injuries, ill health, unnecessary losses and liabilities. To make this happen, we will create and maintain a positive health and safety culture that secures the commitment and participation of all staff to help us achieve the high standards of health and safety in the workplace.

Health and safety is a primary objective of our activities. We will, so far as is reasonably practicable, conduct our activities without avoidable risk to the health and safety of anyone who may be affected by what we do. Although the law sets only minimum acceptable level of performance, we will try to set and achieve higher standards where possible.

We will achieve these standards by providing and maintaining:

A working environment without avoidable risk to the health and safety of our staff, students, contractors, visitors and the general public, and with adequate facilities and arrangements for the welfare of staff at work

Arrangements for ensuring safety and absence of avoidable risks to health in connection with using, handling, storing and transporting articles and substances

Plant, equipment and systems of work that are safe and without avoidable risks to health,

Sufficient information, instruction, training and supervision so staff know how to avoid hazards and contribute positively to their own health and safety at work

Safe ways into and out of places of work under our control
