ERA Safety, Health & Environmental Policy

This statement outlines ERA’s commitment to ensuring the health, safety and wellbeing of our employees and those people and communities who may be impacted by our activities. 
 
Our number one priority is to ensure that our employees are not harmed, or exposed to occupational health risks, while carrying out their work duties. Our aim is to always provide a safe working environment where risks are fully controlled, whilst ensuring that employees are properly trained and equipped with the skills, knowledge and tools to do their job competently. Our belief is that all accidents and incidents are preventable, through a combination of strong safety leadership, zero tolerance approach to unsafe acts and relentless focus on continuous improvement.
 
 The CEO ERA Home Security endorses the Policy. The policy covers all aspects of the business and complies with the requirements of ISO 14001 & OHSAS 18001. The policy includes a commitment to continual improvement and prevention of pollution and provides a framework for setting objectives and targets for EHS improvement, as well as a commitment to meet or exceed relevant EHS legislation, regulations and other requirements. The policy will be reviewed annually by top management, communicated to all employees and made available to the public in accordance with the Communication procedure
 
To support that we will: -
 

- Put health and safety at the forefront of our business objectives - safety will be the first agenda item on every meeting

- Operate a safety management system in accordance with OHSAS 18001 (ISO 45001)

- Set annual targets to eliminate lost time injuries and accidents and report by site, on a weekly basis

- Provide specialist training and resources to enable individuals to carry out their duties and responsibilities safely

- Promote good safety awareness by carrying out relevant training for employees using recognised bodies such as CIEH and IOSH

- Ensure that processes are in place to identify risks/hazards and take preventative measures where necessary

- Establish clear rules and safe operating procedures for all operational activities

- Thoroughly investigate all accidents and incidents to extract key learnings and prevent a reoccurrence

- Actively consult with employees on all aspects of health and safety and encourage the identification of safety improvement opportunities

- Recruit and train sufficient numbers of employees to administer first aid in the event of an accident or incident 

- Strive to care for the environment through commitment to good practices in accordance with ISO 14001 

- Mandate our employees to adhere to our Golden Rules and Safe Operating Procedures – failure to do so could result in disciplinary action

- Encourage our employees to escalate issues where the safety of our workforce is potentially compromised, either directly through a member of the Business Management Team, or via our whistle blowing hotline operated by Safe Call.

At ERA, safety is Everyone’s Responsibility Always.
