Policy Management

The Managing Director is responsible for ensuring that this policy is effectively established, implemented and maintained throughout the company. Site Managers are responsible for ensuring that all operatives receive training and information on the implementation of this policy. Crowngate Construction Ltd involves its employees in the discussion and resolution of health and safety matters that may affect them or their work activities through its ‘open door policy, consultation and participation’. This is done either directly with individual employees on a ‘one-to-one’ basis, or, through the regular site meetings. Changes to the health and safety policy, procedures, practices and arrangements which may affect our employees and/or their health, safety and welfare, will be discussed and agreed prior to introduction or implementation.

The company’s initial induction training will be used to communicate the health and safety policy and any other relevant health and safety information, including site safety rules, procedures and instructions. Periodic refresher training, internal memos, toolbox talks, briefing sessions and posted notices will also be used to communicate the Health & Safety Policy, including changes to the Policy, and other relevant health and safety information.

This Health and Safety Policy will be reviewed by the Managing Director and the Health and Safety Manager at least annually, to ensure that it is relevant to our organisational activities and arrangements, and, that it is up-to-date. The policy will also be reviewed upon the introduction of any relevant health and safety legislation, or change to any existing legislation. Where necessary, the policy will be revised to reflect the outcome of the review.
It is a condition of service that every employee and contractor co-operate fully in helping to implement and complying with this policy. This policy statement, including any changes, will be communicated to all persons working under our control and shall be made available on our website to all interested parties.
