The policy is applicable to all Cube Engineering employees and sub contractors.  This policy will also apply to all persons having responsibilities which relate to and necessitate their presence, and the execution of their duties with in the areas of Cube Engineering works / premises – regardless of status or role in the project.


The application and promotion of this policy is the responsibility of senior management of Cube Engineering.  Whilst duties and tasks may be delegated, the overall responsibility lies with anyone connected with any works package.


All Cube Engineering employees – regardless of their status – are expected to abide by the principles of this policy as and where applicable.  We also wish the co-operation of all those mentioned within the scope section of this policy, to work in such a way that accidents to themselves and others will be prevented.  It is a condition of service that everyone with a vested interest in any works co-operates fully in complying with, and helping to implement, this policy.  Any failure to do so will be regarded as a serious disciplinary matter, and we wish to avoid this by encouraging all stakeholders, sub-contractors and employees to take an active role in promoting Health and Safety within Cube Engineering.


The following principles shall be applied to all operations undertaken by Cube Engineering and shall be the basis of any specific instructions, methods or systems which may be necessary in order to achieve the Policys’ objective.  To ensure that this Policy can be successfully implemented, it will by default sanction the funds needed to be made available to meet the needs of this policy.


Suitable and adequate measures shall be taken to safeguard any person, plant, equipment, property, material or product likely to be exposed to any known or suspected hazards associated with, or arising out of the process, tasks or operations being undertaken.  Cube Engineering will take into account at tendering stage those factors which help to eliminate injury, damage and waste.


Representatives of Cube Engineering (either directly employed or sub-contracted) shall be made aware of the known or suspected hazards associated with, or arising out of the work or duties assigned to them, and where necessary shall be suitably trained or instructed to enable them to carry out the tasks in a safe and efficient manner.

Everyone will be trained in the safe use of plant / equipment which they will be using for their work by the appropriate body where required (eg – CPCS, CITB...etc...).  Where relevant, and body certification is not required, operatives will be instructed on how to use plant / equipment safely either directly by the manufacturer, supplier / hirer or competent person.

The requirements of any Statutory Legislation or Code of Practice applicable to the process or operations being undertaken shall be observed.


All activities shall be conducted in a responsible manner, and so planned and controlled that the possibility of unplanned events is reduced to the practicable minimum.  It is recognised that accident prevention is a joint responsibility of all those mentioned in the Scope section of this policy, and that to understand their joint responsibilities communication from and to all levels is required.


Adequate provision shall be made for the welfare needs of all concerned while carrying out their tasks and duties, and any hazard to health associated with the work shall be the subject of strict precautionary measures.

This Policy shall be reviewed by senior management as often as may be necessary.  Those reviews will take into account new legislation, changes in type of work undertaken, changes in working practices and equipment, and the latest developments in training and accident prevention techniques.
