Health and Safety Policy
It is Suzanne James Ltd general policy that as far as reasonably practicable, an environment is created and maintained within the Company, which is both safe and healthy for the benefit of all employees.  The prevention of all accidents particularly those involving personal injury or damage to equipment and property is recognized as being essential to efficient operation as well as to avoid hardship and suffering.

Suzanne James Ltd recognizes that is not sufficient merely to have a safety policy statement, but what is more important is that the policy adequately identifies the organization for implementing the general policy statement and that everyone concerned is made fully aware of their responsibilities.

This policy is in the form of a manual and is based on the principle of identifying and listing the individual’s responsibility for safety within the company, from Suzanne James, the director, to the newest recruit and visitor.

The observance of the Suzanne James ltd Safety Policy and Procedures are a condition of employment for all employees and it is made clear that failure to adhere to these Regulations may result in disciplinary action, leading to dismissal, for serious cases jeopardizing the health and safety of other employees.

Suzanne James ltd will ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health, safety and welfare of its employees at work and other within the working environment. 
The safety of the individual must come before the needs of the business
and all members of line management are expected to ensure that safe methods and conditions of working are maintained within their own areas of responsibility.

Suzanne James ltd will ensure that management staff at all levels implement the policy by the provision and maintenance of: -

  • A safe and healthy working environment and systems of work
  • Plant and structures designed and maintained to operate and function safely
  • Instructions and procedures as necessary for the safe use of plant, the performance of operations and the safe storage and handling of materials and chemicals
