Health and Safety policy
Our aim is excellence in health and safety and Guardian Security Services will accomplish this by continually seeking to continually improve our health and safety management system so that it meets with our vision, values and the expectations of those affected by what we do.
We will ensure that our responsibilities for health and safety are clearly allocated, understood, monitored, fulfilled and that legal requirements will be regarded as the minimum standard to be achieved.
The company operates a system that regularly evaluates its processes and customer needs, and has set quantifiable objectives with plans in place to ensure that they are reviewed year on year for continual improvement.
Guardian Security Services recognises that complying with The Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974 and pertaining regulation is a legal requirement, not a matter of choice.
We will act positively to minimise the incidence of all workplace risks and all activities will be carried out with the highest regard for the health, safety and welfare of our staff, contractors, visitors and the public at large.
We are committed to providing the financial and physical resources necessary to ensure that a high standard of health, safety and welfare is achieved.
We will empower our staff by providing high quality information, instruction, training and supervision and an ability through participation and consultation to enable them to work safely and effectively and to ensure they are competent and confident in the work they carry out.
Guardian Security Services will carry out and regularly review risk assessments to identify hazards and existing control measures; it will prioritise, plan and complete any corrective actions required to reduce risk to an acceptable level.
Guardian Security Services will also ensure that the premises we occupy and the equipment we provide meet with the minimum legal requirement.
We will actively consult with our workforce and nurture an open attitude to health and safety issues, encouraging staff to identify and report hazards and suggest innovative solutions so that we can all contribute to creating and maintaining a safe working environment.
This policy reflects our commitment to ensuring that health and safety at work is paramount to Guardian Security Services and that effective health and safety actively contributes to our ongoing success. The successful implementation of this policy requires total commitment from all members of staff.
This policy will be reviewed every year or in the light of legislative or organisational change. The policy is available to any interested party through the company website.
