Health & Safety Policy

 

The key principles that support our policy are:

  • Every loss, be it injury, occupational illness, process deviation or near hit, is preventable. In practice this means recognising all hazards and redesigning processes wherever possible to eliminate dangers.
  • No task is so important or so urgent that it cannot be done in a safe manner every time.
  • Appropriate working practises and correct use of protective equipment will be defined for all tasks.
  • LCM staff will work together as a team to establish and continually develop an active culture of health and safety awareness.
  • Full training will be given to enable staff to carry out their tasks in a manner consistent with achieving excellence in health and safety matters.
  • LCM site rules and health and safety policies are mandatory for all staff, contractors or visitors whilst at Hooton Park.
  • Any incidents or near misses will be thoroughly investigated. Control measures to prevent recurrence will be implemented.
  • Control actions that allow an incident to be repeated are deemed to have failed.
  • Working safely is a condition of employment and a requirement under the Health & Safety at Work Act, 1974.
