Health and Safety Policy Statement

Organisation and Arrangements for Implementation

We give notice of our corporate responsibility for all health and safety matters, as set out in the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974.

We will maintain a working environment where the health and safety of our employees is assured.

We will not only comply with the relevant legislation, but will take positive action to prevent ill health, injury and loss and to promote good health and safety practice.

This health and safety policy statement assigns managerial and functional responsibilities, to facilitate the implementation of our Health and Safety objectives. The Directors of STOK and the Management Team are committed to ensure that high standards of health and safety are achieved.

This policy statement, together with the Risk Assessments and Company Procedures published in the Health and Safety Manual, comprise our Health and Safety arrangements.

We will take all reasonably practicable steps to promote and maintain a positive safety culture and high standards of safety throughout our premises, paying particular attention and empowering Managers to achieve the following objectives:

  • To ensure all significant risks arising from our activities are assessed and appropriate

  • Control measures are implemented, with relevant retrievable records retained

  • To provide and maintain plant, structure, fabric, equipment and working environment that is safe and without risk to health

  • To base the design, operation and maintenance of safe systems of work, on sound risk management principles

  • To provide information, instruction, training and supervision that is relevant and appropriate to our activities

  • To provide and maintain safe access and egress to and from all sites and places of work

  • To monitor, evaluate and audit the effectiveness of health and safety plans and strategy

  • It is equally a duty under the Health and Safety at Work Act, for everyone engaged in Company activities to exercise responsibility and care in the prevention of injury and ill health to themselves and to others who may be affected by acts and omissions at work.

    Those who supervise work in all areas especially where Bio Hazards are either present or have the potential to be present, have special obligations to ensure that they do not endanger the health and safety of themselves, other employees, visitors or contractors by their acts or omissions.

    The decision to outsource distribution & consignment management to STOK UK has delivered a number of significant operational & financial benefits to St Jude UK.
