The prevention of accidents and ill-health is one of the most important duties of all our Managers, Supervisors and staff because:

  • We do not want any employee or other person to suffer as a result of our work.
  • We intend to comply with all health and safety legislation.
  • We recognise that accidents, unsafe and unhealthy working conditions can be a considerable drain on the financial resources of the company and demonstrate a lack of efficient management.

This policy document has therefore been prepared and developed to define the way that this intends to manage health and safety and meet the requirements of Section 2 (3) of the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974. This requires an employer to prepare a statement of general policy with respect to health and safety at work and the organisational arrangements set up to carry out that policy.

Successful implementation of this policy should ultimately meet the aims and objectives of Fox Brothers (Lancashire) Limited to prevent accident, injury or ill health to staff or anyone who may be affected by our activities.
