Our Health & Safety Statement
It is our Board's intention to ensure that all work activities are carried out in accordance with our Policy and all relevant statutory provisions. Our Health and Safety Policy sets out the organisation and procedures for managing health and safety throughout its operations.
The Board has nominated Tom Martin as having particular responsibility for Health, Safety and Welfare for Virtus Contracts Ltd.
We will provide all practicable measures, including equipment, information, instruction, training and supervision for employees and contractors, to ensure that their work activities do not put at risk, themselves, their colleagues, occupiers of premises, contractors, visitors or members of the public.
To provide Health and Safety Assistance, as required under current legislation, the services of an external Health and Safety Consultant, will be utilised when necessary.
Where additional training of employees is identified all necessary resources will be provided. All sub-contract workers will be required to demonstrate proof of their training and competence prior to their appointment.
Our' policy is that all employees will be consulted on aspects of their work activities that impact upon health, safety and welfare.
The policy will be brought to the attention of all employees and contractors employed by us. The contents of the policy will be reviewed annually using the assistance of an external consultant where necessary.
At Virtus Contracts we are passionate and concerned about the impact we have on the environment and are committed to contributing to a reduction in our carbon footprint through our construction activities as it has become apparent that the continuous pollution of the environment will endanger the quality of life for future generations if it is not addressed.
