Toprapid Limited Health and Safety Policy
The Company is committed to pursuing excellence in everything it does and this includes the management of health and safety. At Toprapid Ltd we are committed to giving health and safety the highest priority in all of our activities. We expect staff, club members, visitors and contractors to share this commitment by complying with our policies and where appropriate our procedures and to understand that they too have legal and moral obligations to themselves and to one another.
Top Rapid Ltd health and safety objective is to minimise the number of instances of occupational accidents and illnesses and ultimately to achieve an accident-free workplace.
All employees will be provided with such equipment, information, training and supervision as is necessary to implement the policy and achieve the stated objective.
Top Rapid Ltd recognise and accept their duty to protect the health and safety of all visitors to the company, including contractors and temporary workers, as well as any members of the public who might be affected by our operations.
While the management of Top Rapid Ltd will do all that is within its powers to ensure the health and safety of its employees, it is recognised that health and safety at work is the responsibility of each and every individual associated with the company. It is the duty of each employee to take reasonable care of their own and other people's welfare and to report any situation which may pose a threat to the well being of any other person.
The management of Top Rapid Ltd will provide every employee with the training necessary to carry out their tasks safely. However if an employee is unsure how to perform a certain task or feels it would be dangerous to perform a specific job then it is the employee's duty to report this to their supervisor or the Director’s of Safety. An effective health and safety programme requires continuous communication between workers at all levels. It is therefore every worker's responsibility to report immediately any situation which could jeopardise the well-being of themselves or any other person.
All injuries, however small, sustained by a person at work must be reported to the Director’s of Safety or a delegated representative. Accident records are crucial to the effective monitoring and revision of the policy and must therefore be accurate and comprehensive. Top Rapid Ltd.’s health and safety policy will be continually monitored and updated, particularly when changes in the scale and nature of our operations occur. The policy will be updated at least every 12 months. The specific arrangements for the implementation of the policy and the personnel responsible are detailed below.
We are dedicated to ensuring the health and safety of all persons who may be affected by our activities by:-
a. Providing, managing and maintaining a work environment, as well as sport and leisure facilities which are, so far as reasonably practicable, safe and in which risks to health are minimised.
b. Providing adequate and appropriate facilities and arrangements for welfare at work.
c. Providing, managing and maintaining our workplaces, grounds and properties so that they are so far as are reasonably practicable, safe and that risks to health are minimised.
d. Providing, managing and maintaining plant and equipment so that it is as far as is reasonably practicable, safe and that risks to health are minimised.
e. Ensuring that the use, handling, storage and transport of items and substances are carried out safely and that the risks to health are minimised.
f. Implementing systems of work that are safe and under which risks to health are minimised.
g. Providing the necessary organisation, expertise and resource, including communication, consultation and auditing procedures to ensure that there is effective management of health and safety throughout the Company.
h. Ensuring that our staff and any contractors that we employ are competent and are aware of risks in the work that they control.
i. Providing the information, instruction, training and supervision necessary to ensure that our staff, club members, visitors and contractors are aware of the hazards at their workplace or sports facility, together with the appropriate measures to be taken to protect against these hazards.
j. Giving adequate information on relevant hazards to any persons whose health and safety might be affected by them.
k. Consulting with and involving our staff in matters relating to their own health and safety.
l. Adopting a zero tolerance towards staff, concerning breaches of the measures adopted and instructions given with regards to health and safety procedures.
Where there are existing Company policies or guidance we expect our staff, club members and contractors to meet the highest relevant standards and to comply with relevant legislation. Where no standards exist we will work with our staff to develop systems which comply with best practice to eliminate or minimize the risks so far as is reasonably practicable. We undertake to continually review and develop our safety management systems with the aim of carrying out our activities in a manner that does not affect the health and safety of staff, club members, contractors, visitors or members of the public, or adversely affect the environment. We and the other members of the management are committed to this policy and to the implementation and maintenance of the highest standards of health, safety and welfare throughout the Company. We expect every member of the company and the club to share this commitment and to work with us to achieve it.
