The Company accepts its responsibility for health and safety of other persons who may be affected by the Company’s activities. 

 

Following the identification of work related risks and hazards, the Company will take preventative and protective measures. It is also the policy of the Company to ensure that its business is conducted in a manner so as to reduce the risks to members of the public. The Company may require you to attend such training and/or induction programmes in order to meet the aims of the Company. This will help us to improve our standards as a leading Recruitment agency in Hertfordshire. 

 

The allocation of duties for safety matters, the identity of competent persons appointed with particular responsibilities, and the arrangements made to implement this policy are set out in this policy and in associated health and safety records. 

 

This policy will be kept up to date, to reflect changes in the nature and size of the Company.  To ensure this, the policy and its effectiveness will be reviewed annually.
