MERIDIAN CONSTRUCTION SERVICES LTD recognises the fact that Health and Safety has positive benefits to the organisation and commitment to a high evel of safety makes good business sense. It recognises that Health and Safety is a business function and must continually progress and adapt to changes.
The approach to health and safety will be based on identification and control of risks. There are distinct benefits to be gained from providing a safe and healthy working environment, appropriate levels of resources will be allocated to ensure health and safety within the organisation. A positive culture will be supported by senior management. All employees will be involved in the decision-making processes individually or through their representatives.
