Statement of general policy

Within our workplace, we aim to prevent accidents and cases of work-related ill health by managing the health and safety risks in the workplace. It is everyone’s responsibility to keep the working environment tidy and free from hazards. Cables are to be kept tidy and away from any thoroughfare. Combustible materials are to be kept away from electrical devices or any heat sources. Electrical devices will be checked and tested biennially.

Within our offices

We will provide clear instructions and information, along with any necessary training, to ensure employees are competent to do their work. Computer users will be provided with laptop and screen stands, and a separate keyboard and mouse, unless they request otherwise. The company will cover biennial eye examination costs.

We will engage and consult with employees on day-to-day health and safety conditions. Gloves will be provided for handling any rough or bulky items.

We do not work with plant equipment and machinery. We do not handle or store dangerous substances.

Fire

Office fire alarms will be tested weekly. The main office escape route is via the main door, with the muster point directly across the road on Glasshill Street. A fire risk assessment will be conducted annually. Fire extinguishers will be tested annually by an approved agent.

While working on-site in client venues

While performing installation or remedial works at client venues we will perform sensible risk assessment. If the venue is under construction we will include the safety of all staff and contractors in our assessment. If the venue is a functioning hospitality area we will include the safely of all staff and customers in our assessment.

Standard risks

While this list is not exhaustive, the following points should always be considered in addition to any bespoke hazards observed:

Trip hazards
We will assess all pathways and routes to ensure they are clear before and during carrying equipment. We will not leave our equipment, cables or tools in any position where they could present a trip hazard.

Cuts to hands from working in unfinished environments
Our staff are discouraged from installing in unfinished environments. If installation is essential, gloves should be worn at all times. Any cuts or open wounds are to be covered and treated with onsite first aid. All accidents should be reported to the site supervisor.

Electric shock from unfinished supplies or unsafe area
All electric cables and supplies should be checked for damage before use. Electric apparatus must not be installed in unclean or damp areas.
