We always put health & safety as a first priority with every project and are members of the National Irish Safety Organisation and the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (UK) and hold OHSAS 18001 Certification.
Verde’s Health & Safety Policy is to ensure the safety, health and well-being at work of every employee, subcontractor, client and members of the public in so far as is reasonably practicable.
We believe that effective health and safety practices contribute directly to the better performance of the Company as a whole. Our aims are not simply to comply with Health and Safety legislation but to attain higher standards through the adoption of recognised good practices and to provide industry leadership through our Health and Safety performance. We are fully committed to achieving this through a programme of continuous improvement, positively promoting a proactive approach to accident and ill-health prevention. We are committed to providing and maintaining safe and health working conditions, safe systems of work, safe equipment and procedures, in so far as is reasonably practicable and in accordance with that set out in the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005 and all other relevant statutory provisions and codes of practice.
Verde have produced systems and procedures for designing safe systems of work for all aspects of its principal activities which have been identified as high risk. All levels of management and operational staff are required to comply with the Organisation’s safety rules and procedures and to contribute to their further development.
We also recognise that co-operation and consultation at all levels is essential in promoting a positive Health and Safety culture and the Organisation has developed systems for a HSE communication on Health and Safety matters. We have put in place the necessary resources and developed in-house systems to achieve our principles.
