Environment, Health & Safety Policy

 

 

It is the policy of Safeway Technologies Pvt. Ltd. to comply with the terms of the Health and Safety at Work Policies and to provide and maintain a healthy and safe working environment. Safeway Technologies’s health and safety objective is to minimize 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. 

 

Safeway Technologies recognizes and accepts 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 Safeway Technologies will do all that is within its powers to ensure the health and safety of its employees, it is recognized 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 wellbeing of any other person. 

 

The management of Safeway Technologies will provide every employee with the training necessary to carry out his or her 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 program requires continuous communication between workers at all levels. It is therefore every worker’s responsibility to report immediately any situation, which could jeopardize the wellbeing of themselves or any other person. 

All injuries, however small, sustained by a person at work must be reported to the Director of Safety or a delegated representative. Accident records are crucial to the effective monitoring and revision of the policy and must therefore be accurate and comprehensive. The Safeway Technologies health and safety policy will be continually monitored and updated, particularly when changes in the scale and nature of our operations occur. The policy will be updated at least every 12 months.

 

Safeway Technologies is committed to providing a safe and healthful environment for all persons associated with us, including staff, visitors, and members of the community.

 

Safeway Technologies emphasizes an integrated systems approach, as well as safety education and training as the primary means of achieving this goal. The Environment, Health and Safety Supervisor is primarily responsible for environment, health and safety functions at both the corporate and site offices including work sites, by developing EHS programs and performing various periodic inspections. The supervisors are considered directly responsible for maintaining full compliance with State and Federal regulations and Company safety policies and procedures.
