Health and Safety Policy

It is the policy of STV to safeguard the Health, Safety and Welfare of its employees and all persons likely to be affected by its undertakings.

The Group accepts the aims and provisions of the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, and the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 and aims to comply with all relevant statutory obligations. The successful management of health and safety contributes to the overall performance of the Group.

STV is therefore committed to:
  • Developing a positive Health & Safety Culture within the Group that secures the commitment and participation of all employees.
  • Assessing the risks to the Health & Safety of its employees and of anyone else who may be affected by its undertakings with the aim of eliminating or controlling the hazards/risks, so far as is reasonably practicable.
  • Making arrangements for the effective planning, organisation, control, monitoring and review of the preventative and protective measures identified as being necessary by the risk assessments.
  • Providing information, instruction, training, supervision and consultation with employees and others as necessary to implement and maintain high standards of Health & Safety.
  • Establishing arrangements for ensuring safety and absence from risks to Health & Safety in connection with the use, handling, storage and transport of articles and substances, so far as is reasonably practicable.
  • The provision and maintenance of a working environment that is safe and without risks to health, and adequate as regards facilities and arrangements for staff welfare at work, so far as is reasonably practicable.
  • The Group aims to promote positive policies regarding Health & Safety at work; each employee is responsible for strictly adhering to the Group’s policies and procedures.
  • Relevant information for Health & Safety arrangements regarding business specific matters will be issued as separate documents for the particular business.
  • This policy will be kept under constant review and revised in the event of any legislative changes, and amended when necessary.
