Health & Safety

It is the policy of White Light Limited to ensure at all times, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health, safety and welfare of their employees, subcontractors, public and other people who maybe affected by White Light’s activities.

A high standard of health and safety is one of the White Light primary objectives and is recognised as an integral part of service delivery.

The standard will be achieved by: –

  • Creating and maintaining a positive health and safety culture which secures the commitment and participation of all employees and subcontractors.
  • Meeting its responsibilities to employees, non-employees, members of the public and the environment, in a way, which recognises that legal requirements are the minimum standard.
    • Adopting a planned and systematic approach to the implementation of the White Light Health and Safety Policy to ensure:
  • The provision of equipment and systems of work that are, so far as is reasonably practicable, safe and without risks to health;
  • Arrangements for ensuring, so far as is reasonably practicable, safety and absence of risks to health in connection with the use, handling, storage and transportation of articles and substances;
  • The provision of information, instruction, supervision and training as is necessary to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health and safety and welfare of its employees;
  • So far as is reasonably practicable, any place of work under White Light control, the maintenance of it in a condition that is safe and without risks to health and the provision and maintenance of safe access and egress to and from it;
  • The provision and maintenance of a working environment that is, so far as reasonably practicable, safe, without risks to health, and adequate as regards facilities and arrangements for welfare.
    • Identifying and assessing risks associated with all activities of White Light with the aim of eliminating or controlling the risks, so far as is reasonably practicable.
    • Allocating adequate resources to meet the requirements of White Light’s Health and Safety Policy.
    • Planning for health and safety including the setting of realistic short and long-term objectives, deciding priorities and establishing adequate performance standards.
    • Identifying the safety elements within planned development and procurement.
    • Monitoring and reviewing performance on a regular basis to ensure that high standards are maintained.
