The Health and Safety At Work etc. Act 1974 (GB), Health and Safety at Work (Northern Ireland) Order 1978 (NI) and the Safety, Health and Welfare Act 2005 (No. 10 of 2005) (ROI) highlight the duty of all concerned in industry and commerce to play their part, in securing the health, safety and welfare of persons at work, and protecting the community at large against risks to health or safety arising out of or in connection with the activities of persons at work.
At AG we accept our responsibility under the relevant legislation and it is our policy to do all that is reasonably practicable to ensure the health, safety and welfare of employees whilst at work and of others who may be affected by our activities.
AG is committed to meeting all health and safety legislative requirements and in many cases exceeding them. We have a policy of continuous improvement through risk assessment and preventative actions.
Our objectives are to ensure:
AG is committed to the effective management of health and safety throughout all its areas of operation and to providing the necessary resources and framework to ensure that persons working for AG or who may be affected by our activities do not suffer injury or ill health.
This can only be achieved by its directors, managers and employees all working together on a programme of continuous improvement, putting in place effective systems to identify hazards and eliminating them before injury or ill health occurs.
