  • Developing a positive health and safety culture in all undertakings which secures the commitment and participation of all employees.
  • Assessing the risks to the health and safety of its employees and to anyone else who may be affected by its undertakings with the aim of eliminating or controlling the hazards/risks, so far as is reasonably practicable.
  • Making arrangements for the effective planning, organisation, control, monitoring and review of the preventive and protective measures identified as being necessary by the risk assessments.
  • Providing information, instruction, training and supervision to employees and others as is necessary to implement and maintain high standards of health and safety.
  • Establishing arrangements for ensuring safety and absence of risks to health in connection with the use, handling, storage and transport of articles and substances, so far as is reasonably practicable.
  • The provision and maintenance of a working environment for employees that is safe, without risks to health, and adequate as regards facilities and arrangements for their welfare at work, so far as is reasonably practicable.
