Safety, Health, and Welfare at Work Act, 2005 requires employers, their representative management, and employees alike to consider safety as a joint responsibility. The safety and health of all TKA INSULATIONS employees, whether full time or part time, is an important objective of the organisation. Each of us at all levels of the organisation must co-operate to ensure that safe working becomes an instinctive habit.
We commit ourselves as a team to do the job right, first time, in a safe manner, while meeting customer demands. We will achieve and maintain the highest possible standards of occupational health and safety in compliance with the requirements of all Irish and European legislation as it pertains to our activities. The Safety Statement specifies the manner in which the safety and health of persons employed by the organisation will be secured.
The organisation and its management will do all that is reasonably practicable to ensure a safe working environment for both staff and customers at all times.
In particular, the organisation will:
- Provide a team structure that will value the health and safety of all personnel and customers, lead by example and respond to all reasonable health and safety concerns.
- Provide and maintain safe and healthy working conditions, in accordance with all statutory requirements.
- Provide the necessary training and instruction to enable employees to perform their work safely, effectively and without risk to health.
- Make available all applicable safety or protection devices, information, instruction, training, and supervision as is necessary to generate a safe place of work.
- Maintain a constant and continuing interest in health and safety matters pertinent to all the organisations activities.
- Regularly review this Safety Statement and any other safety related documents.
- Carry out ongoing assessments of our operations through the medium of audits and inspections.
Each of us are reminded that every employee has a legal duty under the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Ant, 2007 to take reasonable care of the safety, health and welfare of ourselves and of others who may be affected by our acts and omissions at work.
It is also the specific duty of any employee to report to their immediate Foremen any defects in the procedures, systems of work, structure, or equipment that might endanger the safety, health, or welfare of anyone on site and give the management a reasonable opportunity to correct the situation.
