Health and Safety Policy

 

Burchills Engineering Solutions is committed to providing and maintaining a safe and healthy working environment for all workers, contractors, volunteers, visitors and members of the public. Hazards or risks to health and safety will be eliminated or minimised, as far as is reasonably practicable, so as to prevent injury, illnesses and dangerous incidents. Burchills Engineering Solutions considers safety and incident prevention to be vital to the ultimate success of the organisation’s operations and is an integral part of management’s responsibilities.

Management will meet these requirements by:

  • Complying with both the spirit and letter of the law for all matters relating to work health and safety
  • Providing a safe working environment
  • Providing safe working conditions and safe operating procedures for all company activities
  • Assessing and controlling workplace hazards
  • Developing a consultation process that involves all workers in identifying and resolving health and safety issues
  • Providing workers with information, instruction, training and supervision to allow workers to work safely and without risk to their health
  • Providing contractors and visitors with information and guidance to work safely and without risk to their health
  • Making safety equipment and personal protective equipment (PPE) available whenever required.

  • Each worker has the duty to:

  • Follow all safe work practices, procedures, instructions and rules
  • Work in a manner which ensures the health and safety of him or herself and others
  • Encourage other workers to work in a healthy and safe manner
  • Participate in training
  • Report or rectify any unsafe conditions that come to their attention.

  • This policy is an integral part of our office management plan. Our goal is to have zero injuries to our workers, contractors and members of the public wherever we work. This can only be achieved through consultation with and cooperation by all.

    Safety is everyone’s responsibility!
