Health & Safety Policy Statement

Health and safety is a fundamental part of good management and operational practices, and is integral to all BDL activities. We recognise our legal responsibilities for the health and safety of our employees, and any others who may be affected by our operations. Our aim is to ensure that we achieve exceptional health and safety performance throughout our operations, and the development of a positive health and safety culture. We believe that this adds real value to our business beyond merely ensuring legal compliance.

We achieve our aim through:

Identifying, assessing and controlling levels of risk so that they can be regarded as low as is reasonably practicable (ALARP)
Developing and continuously improving our policy and risk based safety management system to ensure legal compliance and beyond
Planning and delivering our projects to ensure that we provide suitable resources in terms of finance, equipment, people and competence of our people
Providing employees with the necessary premises, training and equipment to enable them to carry out their work in a safe and healthy manner
Collecting and analysing information on incidents
Monitoring and reviewing the management of health and safety as implementing improvement actions as appropriate.

Our target is to eliminate incidents that cause harm to people and business. We measure our performance through reviewing our incident data, our own monitoring and that of main our clients and reports of non-compliances.

Our Health, Safety & Environmental Management System (HSEMS) Manual details how this policy will be achieved and should be read in conjunction with this policy statement.
