The achievement of these aims requires the full commitment and co-operation of both management and employees irrespective of grade or position. To this end, every member of staff, and any contractors undertaking work or providing goods or services must take reasonable care for the Health & Safety of themselves and of other people (whether employees or not) who may be affected by their working activity.
Untidy work areas, whether caused by lack of good housekeeping on the part of the management or by the employees themselves, increase the risk of accident and injury occurring to employees or other persons working in the office.
All employees are expected to co-operate as far as is necessary to enable the company to fulfil its obligations under HASAW. In addition, contractors undertaking work or providing goods or services will be required to meet their obligations under HASAW towards employees of The Company and members of the general public it contacts in our name.
