We comply with the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and subsequent legislation

It is Gainsborough’s policy to comply with the terms of the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and subsequent legislation and to provide and maintain a healthy and safe working environment.

Gainsborough’s health and safety objective is to minimise the number of instances of occupational accidents and illnesses and ultimately to achieve an accident-free workplace.

We have our own health and safety adviser, fully qualified to the latest standards.

All employees will be provided with such equipment, information, training and supervision as is necessary to implement the policy and achieve the stated objective.

Gainsborough recognise and accept their duty to protect the health and safety of all visitors to contracted events, including contractors and temporary workers, as well as any members of the public who might be affected by our operations.

Whilst the management of Gainsborough will do all that is within its powers to ensure the health and safety of its employees, it is recognised that health and safety at work is the responsibility of each and every individual associated with the company. It is the duty of each employee to take reasonable care of their own and other people’s welfare and to report any situation which may pose a threat to the well being of any other person.

The management of Gainsborough will provide every employee with the training necessary to carry out their tasks safely. However if an employee is unsure how to perform a certain task or feels it would be dangerous to perform a specific job then it is the employee’s duty to report this to their Supervisor or Manager. An effective health and safety programme requires continuous communication between workers at all levels. It is therefore every worker’s responsibility to report immediately any situation which could jeopardise the well being of themselves or any other person.

All injuries, however small, sustained by a person at work must be reported to the Events Security Manager or a delegated representative. Accident records are crucial to the effective monitoring and revision of the policy and must therefore be accurate and comprehensive.

Gainsborough’s health and safety policy will be continually monitored and updated, particularly when changes in the scale and nature of our operations occur. The policy will be updated at least every 12 months.
