Health & Safety

General Statement of Policy

It is Tefcote Surface Systems aim to provide an entirely environmental friendly system, which is safe in use and does not contain any V.O.C.’s (Volatile Organic Compounds), lead or any other harmful materials. Tefcote Surface Systems strive to only use products that are waterborne, low odour and non-taint for any of their applications.

The entire product of the company is designed to provide a hygienic environmentally friendly system, which is safe in use. It is therefore a natural step forward to enhance this policy by implementing a comprehensive document, which will be clearly understood by all members of staff.

It is the policy of Tefcote Surface Systems to comply with the terms of the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974 and subsequent legislation and to provide and maintain a healthy and safe working environment. Tefcote Surface Systems health and safety objective is to minimise the number of instances of occupational accidents and illnesses and ultimately to achieve an accident-free workplace. All employees will be provided with such equipment, information, training and supervision as is necessary to implement the policy and achieve the stated objective.

Tefcote Surface Systems recognise and accept their duty to protect the health and safety of all visitors to the company including contractors and temporary workers, as well as any members of the public who might be affected by our operations.

While the management of Tefcote Surface Systems will do all that is within its powers to ensure the health and safety of its employees, it is recognised that health and safety at work is the responsibility of each and every individual associated with the company. It is the duty of each employee to take reasonable care of their own and other people’s welfare and to report any situation which may pose a threat to the well being or any other person.

The management of Tefcote Surface Systems will provide employees with the training necessary to carry out their tasks safely. However if an employee is unsure how to perform a certain task or feels it would be dangerous to perform a specific job then it is the employee’s duty to report this to their supervisor or the Director of Safety. An effective health and safety programme requires continuous communication between workers at all levels. It is therefore every worker’s responsibility to report immediately any situation, which could jeopardise the well being of themselves or any other person.

All injuries however small, sustained by a person at work must be reported to the Safety Advisor a delegated representative. Accident records are crucial to the effective monitoring and revision of the policy and must therefore be accurate and comprehensive.

Tefcote´s health and safety policy will be continually monitored and updated particularly when changes in the scale and nature of our options occur. The policy will be updated at least every 12 months
