HEALTH & SAFETY

The principles and staff of BLVD regard safety as an extremely important priority for the company. This applies to all employees, contractors and members of the public who may be affected by the activities of the company. Current health and safety legislation and relevant approved codes of practice should be complied with at all times. To achieve these aims, BLVD will:

  • Assess the competence of our employees and supply chain to execute the activities which they are expected to undertake.

  • Provide such information, instruction, training and supervision as is necessary to enable the safe performance of work activities.

  • Provide a safe working environment and safe systems of work through design, construction, operation and maintenance of all plant, equipment and facilities.

  • Provide adequate facilities and arrangements for engagement with the workforce on our projects and in our workplaces.

  • Enable employees and contractors to raise issues relative to Health and Safety, no punitive action will be taken against any worker who raises such concerns.

  • Provide appropriate welfare facilities for all employees.• Identify hazards, assess risks and, where reasonably practicable, eliminate or reduce risk to an acceptable level.

  • Provide an effective health and safety management system that meets the requirements of Occupational Health and Safety Act.

  • Provide an occupational health strategy to support industry best practice.• Promote and encourage mutual respect for people involved in our work activities and also in the communities in which we work.

  • Facilitate the sharing of knowledge and lessons learned, both internally and externally.

BLVD has appointed a director to represent health and safety, who will ensure the provision of an effective organisation and arrangements for the implementation of this policy. Every employee has an obligation to take reasonable care for their safety and the safety of others who may be affected by their acts or omissions. They are also obliged to co-operate with their employer in respect of matters concerning health and safety. The involvement and co-operation of employees at all levels is essential for the effective implementation of this policy.
