4 Severn Trent Services Limited Health and Safety Policy Statement As Managing Director of Severn Trent Services Ltd, I have overall corporate responsibility for the health and safety of our employees, as well as customers and members of the public who may be affected by our work. So that this responsibility can be exercised effectively, I have authorised the publication of this Health and Safety Policy that sets out safety principles and standards as well as a managerial framework, as required by the Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974, Section 2 (3). The day-to-day implementation of this policy is a local management responsibility as defined in the responsibilities and arrangements of this document. Sufficient resources will be made available to ensure the capability to discharge these duties correctly, and ensure we comply with all statutory requirements. It is inherent within these duties that management ensure our risk reduction program is correctly planned, managed and implemented in a way which ensures involvement and participation at all levels, committing us to a path of continuous progressive improvement. To achieve this we will in particular, and so far as is reasonably practicable: Provide and maintain a safe place of work, including access and egress, and all those facilities provided for the health and welfare of our employees. Provide and maintain a working environment that is safe and without risks to health. Provide and maintain appropriate machinery, equipment, operational processes, systems of work, (where necessary in writing), at a level whereby our activities can be undertaken safely. Make provision for all necessarily required information, instruction, training, re-training and supervision for all our employees, to ensure their continued competence and to enable them to work safely.
