A breakdown in the proper enforcement of health and safety is a concern. When health and safety procedures are not adhered to, costs can increase – insurance costs, extra labour costs, legal costs, and future difficulties in tendering. This is why Regroup takes health and safety so seriously.
All workers sent out by Regroup to a job will be wearing the correct protective clothing. They will be instructed to report any accidents or near misses to their site supervisor immediately, instructed to report faults or malfunctions in equipment or machinery, will comply with all hazard/warning signs and notices. They will make proper use of all safety equipment and facilities that have been provided to control the working environment.
All Regroup staff will also report any medical condition which may affect the safety of themselves or others around them, they will be made aware of any fire procedures applicable to buildings they may be working in, and will sign in and out at work sites.
Before any Regroup associate commences work the following procedures will be performed:
Each associate will receive a booklet that will clarify:
- Job Description – Explaining the duties that they may be required to perform and also any responsibilities.
- Health and Safety – Our booklet will outline the health and safety requirements. The associate will sign the document to accept his/her full understanding. The document will include your Health and Safety Policy.
- Communication – We outline information that is relevant to each temporary employee.
- PPE – All staff will receive the correct uniform and footwear agreed with Regroup and your Contract Manager. It is Regroups philosophy that our workforce is uniformed to be identified in the same way as our client’s permanent staff.
We at Regroup will liase daily with you the client to monitor the compliance with health and safety. When required we will conduct short training/induction’s prior to the start of any work. This may take the form of tests to familiarise the associate on machinery, such as operating a tail lift or test a driver’s competence.
