(henceforth referred to as Young Voices) to prepare a written statement of general policy regarding the safety and health of all employees in the workplace. The Act also requires that every employee shall:
Under this Act it is the policy of Young Voices to provide and maintain safe and healthy working conditions, equipment, and systems of work for all employees and to provide information, instruction, learning, and supervision as is needed for this purpose.
We also accept our responsibility for the health and safety of other people who may be affected by our activities.
Young Voices actively seeks support from all employees, whatever their status, in achieving the objectives of this Health & Safety Policy. The allocation of duties for safety matters and the arrangements for implementation of the policy are set out in the proceeding sections of the Policy.
This policy will be updated as required and the way in which it is being operated reviewed annually. This policy is issued to all employees as part of the hiring process. The risk assessments carried out by Young Voices have been developed in conjunction with this policy.
