Health and Safety Policy

 Eugene Duffy Construction Ltd. accepts and is committed to meeting its responsibilities under the Health and Safety at Work Order 1978, the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations (NI) 2000, Safety Health and Welfare Act 2005 (ROI) and associated protective legislation both as an Employer and as a Company.

It is the policy of Eugene Duffy Construction Ltd that its operations are executed at all times in such a way to ensure, so far as is reasonably practical, the health, safety & welfare of all its employees and all persons likely to be affected by operations including sub-contractors, labour only sub-contractors and members of the public.

The Company is committed to continuously improving its safety management systems, to the prevention of injury and ill health, and actively seeks to establish and maintain the highest possible standards of Health, Safety & Welfare procedures and to keep said procedures under constant review in order to ensure ongoing compliance with current legislation & best practice.

Ultimate responsibility for health & safety lies with the Directors in Charge who are responsible for the continuing implementation and enhancement of the health & safety policy and will ensure that all necessary resources are devoted to meeting these objectives.  These resources will include the provision of technical & financial resources & information, training and instruction for the staff as the need arises.

The attainment of the Company’s goals in relation to health, safety and welfare can only be achieved by the full co-operation of all Senior Management, Foremen, Employees & Subcontractors, thus the Company looks to every employee at all levels for a continuous awareness of health & safety requirements, alertness to existing & potential hazards and the need to minimise them and report them.

Those employees with a management function have a duty to apply this policy throughout Eugene Duffy Construction Ltd operations.

All employees including sub-contractors and labour-only sub-contractors are expected to co-operate with the Company in achieving these objectives and are reminded of their duty to take reasonable care of their own safety and that of others who could be affected by their acts or omissions.

The organisation and arrangements, which follow, are the means by which the company will meet its objectives for Health & Safety. This document will be communicated and available to all employees and sub-contractors. It shall be reviewed for continuing suitability and amended as required.
