Health & Safety Policy

man holding hard hat under armHill Contracts fully recognises the duties placed on it by the Health & Safety at Work Order (NI) 1978 and all other relevant legislation. Hill Contracts recognises that it has a duty to ensure the health, safety and welfare of all employees, so far as is reasonably practicable. Hill Contracts is committed to ensuring that these obligations are met and wherever reasonably practicable shall exceed them.

Hill Contracts believes that the provision of a safe working environment and systems will enhance the company’s health and safety climate. It is therefore considered that excellent health and safety performance directly contributes to our commercial success.

Hill Contracts recognises the duties it has not only to its staff, but also to all trainees, those obtaining work experience through school programmes, visitors, sub-contractors and any others who may be affected by its activities.

Hill Contracts recognises that all employees must adhere to their duties under the Health & Safety at Work Order (NI) 1978 and therefore ensures that employees do not endanger themselves or others working with them. Neither must they interfere with anything that has been provided in the interests of health and safety. This is enforced through regular training and communication with all affected by the activities of Hill Contracts.

Hill Contracts is committed to the following principles:

  • That activities and objectives should be set to ensure a continuous improvement in health and safety.
  • That active monitoring, through inspections, audits and safety reviews is an essential element of performance improvement.
  • That appropriate resources, both financial and physical will always be available to support this policy.
  • That all employees will be provided with sufficient information, instruction, supervision and training to enable them to work safely and efficiently.

Hill Contracts undertakes to revise and review this policy as often as future developments in health & safety legislation renders appropriate.
