As a specialist in tower crane business, we have made health and safety our highest priority for our customers, our suppliers and our own employees.

We work in a high-risk sector at height, on challenging construction sites so best practice in health and safety is at the core of everything we do. We ensure this by employing the very best employees, who are experienced in what they do and trained to the highest levels.

Our management team is able to advise, support and assist with health and safety, ensuring teams on the ground are consistently meeting expectations. To maintain our excellent safety record, our equipment is subject to routine inspections and maintenance.

ELM Service acknowledge that the key to successful health and safety management requires an effective policy, company and arrangements, which reflect the commitment of senior management. To maintain that commitment, we will continually measure, monitor and revise where necessary, an annual plan to ensure the health and safety standards are adequately maintained.

The Managing Director will implement the company’s health and safety policy and recommend that successful health and safety management contributes to successful business performance and will allocate adequate finances and resources to meet these needs.

The management of ELM Service looks upon the promotion of health and safety measures as a mutual objective for themselves and employees. It is therefore, the policy of management to do all that is reasonably practicable to prevent personal injury and damage to property. Also, the company aims to protect everyone, including visitors and members of the public, including those who come into contact with our activities, from any foreseeable hazard or danger.

All employees have duties under the Occupational Safety and Health Act 1994 and are informed of their personal responsibilities to take due care of health and safety of themselves and to ensure that they do not endanger other persons by their acts or omissions. Employees are also informed that they must co-operate with the company in order that it can comply with the legal requirements placed upon it and in the implementation of this policy.

The company will ensure a systematic approach to identifying hazards, assessing the risks, determining suitable and sufficient control measures and informing employees of the correct procedures needed to maintain a safe working environment.

We will provide, so far as is reasonably practicable, safe places and systems of work, safe plant and machinery, safe handling of materials and substances, the provision of adequate safety equipment and ensure that appropriate information, instruction, training and supervision is given.

We regard all health and safety legislation as the minimum standard and expect management to achieve their targets without compromising health and safety.
