TMG Health & Safety
We take health and safety very seriously at TMG and are consistently putting measures in place to ensure the wellbeing of our team, their families, our clients and all of our trade partners.
Our health & safety vision is quite simple:
“We will all have a healthy and safe workplace, and all team members go home safe to their families”
Our team are involved in every aspect as safety and health in our workplace as it is a shared responsibility. Everybody has responsibility for their personal safety and the safety of their fellow workers. When we are planning work, we take into consideration the safety of all those who use the workplace and the general public that may come into contact with our activities.
The success of our health and safety and programme relies strongly on the team concept with everyone continuously working together to reduce the opportunities for accidents and improving our safety records. All team members:
- Participate in Hazard Identification & training programmes
- Ensure that we can respond to emergencies
- Look for methods of improving our work practices
- Support fellow workers when they need assistance
Complacency can never be associated with any of our business activities. We therefore actively promote health and safety objectives, and it is the duty of every individual to co-operate by working in such a manner to ensure the health and safety of themselves and others. To this end it is important that Safety and Health Management is integrated with –
Productivity (the things we do)
Quality (the way we do it).
There are three key reasons why we consistently continue to improve our approach to Safety and Health Management:
1. Moral and Ethical Reasons
We all want to achieve a positive result for our company, the families we support and for the community.
Our main assets are the people within the organisation and none of us want to cause the company and team any hardship or disrepute.
2. Commercial Reasons
A poorly controlled approach to safety and health will erode the company’s profits.
A well-managed safety and health programme with everybody’s involvement will help give us keep a competitive edge to ensure survival into the future.
3. Legal Reasons
Common law – the principle of “Duty of Care” for our own team, our contractors, clients, and members of the public that we interface with.
The Health and Safety in Employment Act 1992, and relevant Regulations and Codes of Practice.
