Health and Safety Policy Arrangements
This section details the arrangements for the effective management of health and safety at Remote First Aid.
This sets out our commitment to provide and maintain safe working conditions for our employees, learners and others who may be affected by our activities.
We will ensure that the objectives of this statement are communicated to our employees and learners, initially through our induction training and our relevant Handbooks.
We will also monitor progress towards these objectives at senior management level and we will review them annually in consultation with our employees and other interested parties.
The policy is supported by our health and safety management team.
We are aware that senior managers within the company are individually and collectively responsible for health and safety. Therefore, specific responsibility for health and safety has been assigned to the Head of Centre The Head of Centre is the person with overall responsibility for health and safety.
The Head of Centre is supported by staff who are responsible for managing health and safety matters on a day to day basis. The Head of Centre will manage our health and safety programme, ensuring that all the essential elements of the system are implemented, monitored and reviewed. However, we are aware that we can only meet our objectives through the efforts of our employees and learners; therefore, we have established clear lines of communication and encourage our employees and learners to cooperate with us in achieving our objectives. We recognise that the key to successful health and safety management is to ensure each employee and learner is competent to carry out their responsibilities. To this end we have developed and implemented a training policy which clearly defines who is responsible for training and identifies what training each individual need, based on the results of our risk assessments.
This policy is revised periodically and at least annually to ensure with the following prescribed criteria:
- Legislative requirements defined by law where appropriate.
- Valid 17th July 2019.
