The Directors and Management believe that all workers and visitors are entitled to a safe and healthy environment at SWA. BS OHSAS 18001 sets out the minimum requirements for occupational health and safety management best practice ensuring that we protect all employees and any visitors to SWA remain to be in a safe environment.
Health and safety is relevant to all aspects of our business, from working with manufacturers, through to despatch of goods. As our business and management systems develop we will take every opportunity to improve our health and safety performance. Specific objectives to help us achieve this will be set, communicated and reviewed as part of an annual cycle of health and safety management. Currently we identify our main hazards to be fire safety; manual handling; safe use of chemicals and use of equipment.
The Company also recognises its duty to protect the health and safety of all visitors to our building, including contractors and temporary workers, as well as any customers, end-users and other members of the public who might be affected by our operations. We will take account of these considerations in all planning and risk assessment.
Legal compliance is a minimum standard or SWA and we strive to exceed this wherever possible
