                                                          RICHMOND HEALTH & SAFETY - GENERAL POLICY STATEMENT      

Richmond Engineering regard the promotion of health, safety and welfare measures as a mutual objective for management and employees at all levels. The board of directors consider this a management responsibility equal to that of any other function. It is therefore company policy to assess all significant risks to employees and others which may arise from any of Richmond Engineering's undertakings and to develop and maintain preventative and or protective measures which shall avoid or reduce risks to the lowest extent reasonably practicable.

To this end Richmond Engineering shall provide such resources and competent technical advice as may be necessary to enable employees to meet their health and safety responsibilities. Successful implementation of this policy requires the whole hearted commitment of everyone within Richmond Engineering, and acceptance by individual employees of their responsibility to;

 a). use machinery, equipment, dangerous substances, transport equipment, means of production or safety device provided,  and

 b). inform their director or manager of any work situation which they reasonably consider represents a serious and immediate danger to health and safety, and of any matter which they reasonably consider represents a shortcoming in Richmond Engineering's protection arrangements for health and safety. All persons are reminded that it is a criminal offence to misuse or recklessly interfere with anything which is provided in the interests of health, safety and welfare.                  

Richmond Engineering stresses its commitment to health & safety to the extent that where wilful disregard for safe working practises by any employee seriously puts at risk the health and safety of themselves or any other person, this shall be considered as gross misconduct and may lead to the severest disciplinary action.

A copy of this general statement shall be issued to all Richmond employees. It may be revised, added to or modified from time to time and shall be supplemented where appropriate by local safety procedures, safe working practise or guidance notes.
