Health and Safety
Sunderland Engineering Training Association Limited regards health and safety as being a major management concern. The Company accepts the final responsibility for ensuring that the necessary arrangements exist to provide, as far as is reasonably practicable, the safest and healthiest working conditions possible for all our employees, learners1 using the Centre and for others who may be affected by our work activities.
This responsibility will be discharged by the Chief Executive, who will provide and maintain safe, healthy working conditions, arrange appropriate training to enable employees and learners to work safely, provide such safety equipment as is required and ensure its effective use, actively seek the co-operation of all employees and actively endeavour to encourage learners to adopt safe working practices at all times.
All employees and learners of S.E.T.A. have a part to play in the implementation and successful operation of this policy. Employees and learners must work in accordance with safety instructions, be responsible for their own behaviour, use the protective equipment provided, and report any unsafe conditions which may arise, and must not do anything that will put others at risk.
The Chief Executive will periodically review the effectiveness of this policy, monitor health and accident statistics and consider any health and safety matters of particular concern at that time.
This policy has been produced with specific reference to the guidance outlined in the Health & Safety Executive’s “Successful Health & Safety Management” HSG65 and associated legislation.
