Health and Safety Policy
Brown Matthews Architects places great important on Health and Safety. Effective Health and Safety Management is a key element in all of our business objectives. The Practice’s Health and Safety Policy is set out in detail in the Office Manual issued to all staff.
It is the policy of the Practice to provide and maintain safe and healthy working conditions for all employees, and to provide such information, training and supervision as is reasonably needed for the purpose. This policy similarly applies to other people visiting or working in the Practice’s offices. Every member of staff is expected to take care of their own safety and that of colleagues and visitors to the Practice’s premises and co-operate with others in following Practice Policy.
Responsibility for the implementation of the Practice’s policy rests with the Principal.
Steven Matthews is the Practice’s Safety Officer.
The Practice publishes and regularly reviews the assessments, management arrangements and maintains up to date published documents covering the various Regulations. The Practice’s Health and Safety policy sets out the principal H&S duties and objectives for achievement by its employees.
To reinforce the need for safety on site we provide detailed preliminaries to any contract document, defining requirements for safe working. In addition our staff are also trained to identify and deal with unsafe construction site practices.
