Health and Safety

At World Wide Plants we take health and safety very seriously, constantly reviewing our procedures and working practices to ensure the safety of our staff and of the members of the public where we are working. Risk assessments and method statements are produced for either ongoing contract maintenance or one off works. We are a member of Safecontractor and are fully insured for public and employee liability. Our health and safety policy is as follows:

Health and Safety Policy

The company commits itself to make every reasonable effort to provide safe and healthy working conditions.

To achieve this the active co-operation of all employees is essential and everyone is expected to work in such a way that accidents to themselves, colleagues, clients, the general public and property avoided.  To this end, safe systems of work will be laid down.

The Company will ensure safety training, participate in the joint consultation, provide personal protective equipment where necessary and constantly check and inspect its safety methods and organisation in the light of Government Legislation and experience gained.

We will keep track of all new Government Legislation and regulations affecting Health and Safety and will give all possible assistance to ensure that the Company systems are understood at all levels.

World Wide Plants will ensure that there is an effective policy backed by appropriate systems and will periodically appraise the effectiveness of both policy and systems and ensure necessary changes are made.

Mr M Raybould will be responsible for the provision of training all aspects of Health and Safety to their work location.

Clear policies regarding First Aid, Equipment, Machinery, Materials, Fire and Reporting Procedures are all laid down in the Company Health and Safety leaflet.  This is held by the Manager of every location and is available for examination by all employees.

Employees acting against this policy or not taking appropriate action in line with their responsibilities will be disciplined.

Technical information brochure for all chemical substances as per C.O.S.H.H regulations will be held on each location if such chemicals are stored there.

The Health & Safety at work Act 1974 requires that the employer shall bring to the employees attention, as it shall be considered necessary and adequate for the protection of their Health and Safety.
