Rope Contractors Health And Safety
Rope Contractors is committed to preventing accidental injury, environmental release, or loss of any of its resources, including personnel and physical assets.
In meeting this commitment to protect people, environment, and property, we will provide and maintain a safe and healthy workplace that leads to caring for the physical, psychological, and social well-being of its employees. Rope Contractors will direct work in accordance with industry standards and adhere to all applicable legislative requirements. Staff will be competent in performing the required duties and will strive to eliminate any foreseeable hazards which may result in property damage, environmental incidents, accidents, or personal injury/illness.
Health and Safety Policy:
- The HSE policy is applicable to all employees, subcontractors, suppliers and any third parties involved in Rope Contractors operations. Compliance with the HSE Policy is a condition of employment.
- An HSE Management System will be in place in each company location. Managers and team leaders are to assist in the development, implementation and monitoring of this system and encourage cooperation from all employees on HSE issues to ensure the success of the HSE Management System
- HSE is a management responsibility. Managers and supervisors are expected to show full commitment to HSE and will rank it equally with responsibilities for production, sales, costs, and similar matters. HSE performance is included in the appraisal process.
- The Company will provide training and all necessary resources to all employees in order to allow everybody to perform to his/her full potential and in a HSE-conducive manner.
- Risk management is seen as the cornerstone of any HSE management system. Hazards will be identified prior to work starting through a systematic risk assessment procedure. If any activity is judged to present an unacceptable risk, the risk must first be controlled and reduced to As Low As Reasonably Practicable (ALARP) before work is undertaken.
- HSE relies upon a continuous improvement process in which employee participation is required, encouraged and recognised. In particular, if witnessing an unsafe act or hazard, every employee is expected to rectify the situation, report accordingly or, if appropriate, stop the operation.
- Focus shall be on prevention rather than correction, with the aim of doing the right thing right the first time through effective teamwork.
- The Company HSE policy is built on a “No blame” culture, as we are more concerned with recognising and minimising non-conformance than we are with looking for someone to blame.
- Effective control mechanisms, including audits and reviews are established to allow objective evaluations of the adequacy of the Company Management Systems and of their implementation throughout all Access operations.
Rope Contractors carry the ultimate responsibility for the Company’s commitment to Health, Safety and the Environment. Each and every employee is expected to be equally committed and to be dedicated to the continuous improvement of HSE performance.
