Worksafe Policy Statement
T Lott Limited acknowledges its responsibility under the ‘Health & Safety at Work Act’ and recognises our duty of care and undertake to maintain a safe system of work and operate a Worksafe Policy (or Refusal to Work Policy) for all our staff and sub-contractors working on all our sites.
Risk assessments are carried out in line with the Management of Health & Safety at Work Regulations and the Company’s Health & Safety Policy. Control measures are put in place, including method statements, COSHH information and toolbox talks to reduce risks as far as is reasonably practicable.
Sufficient training and monitoring is provided to ensure the competence of all staff and we do not expect any employee or sub-contractor to undertake any duties unless they are competent, have been briefed on any relevant information specific to the task and have suitable protective equipment (PPE).
We require all employees to work safely at all times and to ensure that others around them work safely. This includes complying with site rules, all site specific procedures and instructions, wearing the correct and appropriate PPE and the use of the correct tools and equipment. Where the use or operation of a machine, method of working of other influencing factors that constitute a danger to staff or another person exists, the employee may refuse to operate the machine.
The employee may also refuse to carry out a method of working when it puts the life, health or safety of himself/herself or another person in danger. Employees refusing to work on Health & Safety grounds will be supported and no disciplinary action, financial or other penalty, will be taken.
Escalation for resolving a ‘refusal to work’ is through the senior person on site in the first instance and any reports of unsafe working will be investigated and appropriate remedial action will be taken by a member of the board of directors.
