Peak Air Conditioning is an established mechanical installation business specialising in the design, supply and installation of air conditioning and ventilation systems across a diverse range of commercial sectors.
Following an internal review, and as part of their continual improvement initiative, Peak Air Conditioning Ltd wanted to improve their company health and safety policy in order to make it more comprehensive and robust.
Callidus have a good existing relationship with Peak through our Competent Person Service and therefore were engaged to provide the updated policy as well as a consultation with Peak’s Managing Director.
Health and Safety Policy
Under Section 2 (4) of the Health & Safety at Work Act 1974, employers are required to prepare, and as often as may be appropriate, revise a health and safety policy detailing their arrangements for the management of health and safety.
Given the important legal status given to this document, it is critical that employers have a policy in place which is both suitable and sufficient taking into account the scope and nature of the business activities they undertake.
Callidus carried out a review of Peak Air Conditioning’s existing health and safety policy and advised Peak of the amendments required. Following this consultation, we produced a new draft policy laying out the roles, responsibilities and management arrangements specific to the company operations.
The new policy was reviewed by Peak’s Managing Director before final amendments were made by Callidus and the final policy was issued.
Callidus has extensive experience in advising and assisting clients in the development of a comprehensive and well-structured health and safety policy that clearly states the responsibilities of both employer and employees, and sets out the health and safety arrangements specific to the operations of the business.
Peak Air Conditioning was pleased with their improved health and safety policy which presented a much more robust set of health and safety arrangements for the company.
Callidus ensured clear communication throughout and maintained strict milestones to guarantee the project was delivered within the defined timescales.
