Health and Safety Policy StatementHealth and Safety Banana Skins

The health and safety at work act 1974 imposes statutory duties on employers and employees. QuickPrint will carry out these statutory duties and ensure that the responsibilities for health and safety are properly assigned, accepted and fulfilled at all management levels. All practical steps are taken to safeguard the health, safety and welfare of all employees and visitors to the premises, or operations under our control.

QuickPrint will endeavour, as far as is reasonably practical, to ensure the following:

  • The provision and maintenance of equipment and systems of work that are safe and without risks to health or safety
  • Arrangements for the use, handling, storage and transport of articles and substances for use at work are safe and without risks to health and safety
  • That adequate information is available with respect to articles and substances used at the company, detailing the conditions and precautions necessary to ensure that, when properly used, they will be safe and without risks to health.
    These details will be available from the safety officer
  • That the company will provide such information, instruction, training and supervision as is necessary to ensure the
    health and safety at work of its employees and the students
  • The maintenance of all plant, machinery, equipment and systems of work, at any premises or operations under our
    control are safe to employees, contractors, and any other persons who may be affected by our undertakings
  • The working environment of all employees is safe and without risks to health and adequate provision is made with
    regard to facilities and arrangements for their welfare at work
  • The company will actively encourage joint consultation between the management and employees on matters of
    health, safety and welfare, and provide them with sufficient facilities, information and training to carry out their safety tasks
  • The health and safety policy is appraised and updated as and when necessary. Communications of any changes will
    be made to everyone via the health and safety notice board

it is the duty of every employee at work:

  • To take reasonable care for the health and safety of themselves and other persons who may be affected by their acts
    or omissions whilst on the company premises
  • To co-operate with the management so far as is necessary to enable that duty or requirement to be performed or complied with
  • The highest standards of health and safety cannot be achieved without the wholehearted interest and co-operation of each person.
    The company safety staff will make every effort to encourage such interest and co-operation particularly through awareness seminars
  • Training is fundamental to the achievement of ever improving safety standards and appropriate safety training programmes at all
    levels will be developed and maintained to ensure awareness of health and safety requirements among all levels of management,
    supervision and by each employee
