Drew Smith Group - Health and Safety

Health and Safety

Health and Safety remains a key part of our operations and underpins all we do. We are committed to providing a safe workplace environment for our team, our supply chain and our customers.

Our recent award of the RoSPA Gold standard for occupational health and safety demonstrates this commitment and recognises the strong emphasis we place on the continual training of our team. However we are not complacent and will maintain a vigilant approach to managing and implementing our health and safety procedures supported by a culture where safety comes first.

Health and Safety Policy Statement

It is the stated intention of Drew Smith Group to manage our affairs in such a manner that the safety and health of our workforce is ensured to the greatest extent possible. We encourage a culture of openness and cooperation within our workforce at all levels to ensure that practical, achievable safety standards are agreed and maintained by everyone within the organisation.

Good safety management begins with the commitment of senior management to ensure that the responsibilities and arrangements detailed within this document are carried out fully.

It is our commitment that when making changes, that these changes will be for the better and will result in improved standards of safety and health for our workforce. The commitment extends to the procurement of new plant and equipment, new chemicals or products, new means of access or egress and new training for personnel at all levels within the company.

Senior management accept that keeping up to date on matters of health and safety is an essential part of their role.

Our duty extends to the public, other contractors and anyone else who could be affected by our work, and we will consider all parties affected by our works when managing risk.

The person within the organisation with overall responsibility for health and safety is Phil Farminer, Director.
