Health and Safety at Work
It is clear that safe and healthy working conditions and systems can only be achieved by the combined effort of all employees regardless of their status in the Company.

Employees must take reasonable care for the health and safety of themselves and of people who may be affected by their acts or omissions at work.
Employees must inform their direct manager of any hazards of which they are aware, in order that appropriate action can be taken.
Employees must report any incidents that have lead to injury and ensure they are recorded in the accident book. It is also the responsibility of every member of management to ensure that the legal duties and the Company policy requirements are fully implemented.
