  • Health and Safety Policy

    Statement of Intent

    ECF Engineering Ltd and its employees are committed to maintaining the highest standards of safety by devoting the human and capital resources necessary to create a working environment in which our people can work without injury or incident, so far as is reasonably practicable. We also fully accept our responsibility for other persons who may be affected by our activities. We will also take steps to ensure that our statutory duties are met at all times.

    Each employee will be given such information, instruction and training, as is necessary to enable them to carry out their activities safely.

    Our managers recognise their responsibility for managing health and safety within the Company's operations, and believe that all injuries and incidents at work are preventable. Working safely is a condition of employment for all employees and contractors.

    It is the duty of management to ensure that:

    • All processes and systems of work are designed to take account of health and safety and are properly supervised at all times.
    • Resource and plan policy implementation
    • Monitor, measure and review performance targets and achievements so that we can learn from past experience, correct deficiencies, and ensure continuous improvement
    • Be prepared to take appropriate action against any individual or contractor who contravenes the Company's safety rules and standards
    • Ensure, through appropriate coaching and training, that all employees are competent to undertake their duties without causing injury or ill health to themselves or others or damage to property, plant and equipment

    ECF Engineering Ltd firmly believes that the management of health and safety is the responsibility of all employees but must be led by line management. Accordingly, we require all operational managers to:

    • Comply, as a minimum level of performance, with all health and safety legislation, regulation and codes of practice that are relevant to the business activity
    • Assess in advance the health and safety risk implications of any new plant, processes, procedures, substances and equipment in order to implement safe systems of work
    • Prevent any employee or contractor from undertaking a task unless it can be completed safely
    • Ensure adequate facilities and arrangements are being maintained to enable employees and their representatives to raise issues of health and safety.
