To ensure the principles of health and safety are clearly understood throughout the Company, we will be committed to:

• complying with relevant health and safety laws and regulations, voluntary programmes, collective agreements on health and safety and other requirements to which the Company subscribes;

• setting and monitoring of health and safety objectives for the Company;

• effective communication of and consultation on health and safety matters throughout the Company;

• assessing the risks to the safety and health of our employees and others who may be affected by our activities and implementing controls to minimise those risks;
