Health and Safety

QC Data UK Limited recognises and accepts its duty to ensure, as far as is reasonably practicable, the health, safety and welfare of all employees, contractors and visitors. QC Data seeks to minimise the number of accidents and or incidents which occur as a result of the company’s operations. QC Data is committed to providing adequate physical and financial resources to ensure the realisation of the Health, Safety and Environmental policies.

QC Data adheres to all legislative and regulatory requirements and encourages and enforces a safety culture.

The company ensures that adequate numbers of employees are trained in first aid, fire marshalling and in conducting health and safety assessments. Managers throughout QC Data have responsibility for health and safety in their area of operation. Michael Pfeiffer, CEO, has ultimate responsibility for the formulation, implementation and monitoring of the policy. He is supported in this by the Health, Safety and Environment Manager.

General health and safety awareness forms part of the induction of all employees. Additional instruction is also given to those who as part of their job are exposed to potentially hazardous environments. Risk assessments on all work areas are undertaken and revised on a regular basis.

All employees are made aware of the importance of the timely reporting of accidents and potential hazards. The monitoring of accidents and the development and sharing of good practice on health and safety issues forms part of the remit of the Health Safety and Environment Manager and all operational managers.

Health and Safety is an agenda item at all management meetings in order to ensure uniform understanding across all company locations, to provide opportunities for Health and Safety procedures to be reviewed and contribute towards improving business performance and allow the establishment and reviewing of realistic Health and Safety annual targets. QC Data consults on matters affecting staff Health and Safety through various means including regular staff site meetings.

The practical operation of this policy statement is supported by the Health and Safety policy and the detailed individual policies. The Health Safety and Environment Manager is available as a central source of advice and guidance to management and employees in the development and implementation of good practice on health and safety issues.

This policy document and the detailed individual policies are available to all employees within QC Data and will be reviewed as circumstances change and in any event within 2 years.
