Health And Safety Policy Statement
Bridgend Festivals Hire policy is to ensure excellence by encouraging and promoting the best practises to provide and maintain a safe and healthy work place.
Accident prevention and the safety of employees, visitors and other persons not in our employment is a vitally important issue for our Health and Safety System which has been compiled with this in mind.
The systems we have put in place will identify any substandard practices and conditions and will provide policies to correct these. It will specify arrangements for identifying hazards which will be identified, analysed and appropriate controls implemented.
Significant Hazards as defined in the Health and Safety in Employment Act 1992 will be eliminated whenever practicable or if impracticable isolated or maximalised by controls.
Our systems also ensure all accidents are recorded and investigated to determine the causes so that corrective steps can be taken to prevent a recurrence. Our staff training policy will ensure all new and existing staff are trained for all tasks undertaken by them.
We have put in place adequate preparations for emergencies and all employees will have the opportunity to be fully involved in the development of procedures to control hazards and deal with emergencies. In return Bridgend Festivals expects employees/ volunteers to:
Take reasonable care for their own health and safety and others who may be affected by their actions or omissions during employment.
Co-operate fully with Bridgend Festivals in ensuring the discharge of its duties in all matters of health and safety.
Use and respect the safety equipment provided.
Our systems are audited regularly to ensure standards are continually maintained and improved. With support from management, and with staff who are committed to safe work methods, these practises will ensure Bridgend Festivals provides a safe and health work environment for everyone.
