Health & Safety

North West micro-generation

At Barnett Engineering we take Health & Safety Seriously and to this end we have written and implemented a Health & Safety Management System suitable to manage the risks associated with our business.

We are in scope and due to be accredited to SafeContractor standards early in 2010.

Please see our Policy Statement below.

Health & Safety Policy Statement

Barnett Engineering will establish and implement a Health and Safety Management System to manage the risks associated with our premises and activities.

Regularly monitor our performance and revise our Health and Safety Management System as necessary to ensure we achieve our objective of continuous improvement.

Provide sufficient resources to meet the requirements of current Health and Safety legislation and aim to achieve the standards of 'Good Practice' applicable to our activities.

Actively promote an open attitude to Health and Safety issues, encouraging staff to identify and report hazards so that we can all contribute to creating and maintaining a safe working environment.

Communicate and consult with our staff on all issues affecting their health and safety and, in doing so, bring this policy to their attention.

Provide adequate training for our staff to enable them to work safely and effectively, and to ensure they are competent and confident in the work they carry out.

Carry out and regularly review risk assessments to identify hazards and existing control measures. We will prioritise, plan and complete any corrective actions required to reduce risk to an acceptable level.

Maintain our premises and work equipment to a standard that ensures that risks are effectively managed.

Ensure that responsibilities for Health and Safety are allocated, understood, monitored and fulfilled.

Co-operate with other organisations on construction sites to ensure that they are aware of any risks to their employees and other people posed by our activities, that we are aware of any risks to our employees from their activities, and that we comply with the requirements of relevant legislation.

It is the duty of all of us when at work:
