Health and Safety
Corniche Construction Limited are committed to carrying out its duties under section 2(3) of the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and fulfilling its obligations to both employees and the public. It is our aim to achieve a working environment which is free of work related accidents and ill-health and to this end we pursue continuing improvements from year to year.
SR Safety Solutions are our Health and Safety advisors. They provide competent advice as required under Management of Health and Safety Regulations. They review of our policy and frequent updates on legislation changes.
We are a CHAS accredited contractor. CHAS is a non commercial scheme for health and safety pre-qualification in the UK to a nationally recognised and accepted threshold standard. The scheme fully reflects the stage one requirements of assessing competence under CDM 2015.
We are also members of CHSG and undergo an annual review of our policy arrangements.
We recognise that our operations have an effect on the local, regional and global environment. We will ensure that all staff are trained in our Environmental Management System and given guidance on its implementation.
As a consequence of this, Corniche Construction is committed to continuous improvements in environmental performance and the prevention of pollution.
As part of our policy on child protection Corniche Construction will:
- Protect young people from harm
- Manage them as we would all staff with regards to Health and Safety.
- Assess risks to their health, safety and welfare.
One to one working in closed or isolated environments is avoided wherever possible. Physical contact is only used when guidance for a specific job task cannot be given without it.
Confidential information given in the workplace which causes concern for the young persons safety and welfare is reported immediately to school or college contacts.
Any employees disqualified from working with children have declared their position as required by the Criminal Justice and Court Service Act.
