Health & Safety

The Health, Safety and Welfare of Employees in the Workplace is governed by Irish legislation. The principal act governing Employer duties regarding Health and Safety in the Workplace is the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act. There are also a number of European Union Directives which set out detailed requirements with regards to safety and health in the workplace.

At Adare we have set out information with regards to the key areas Organisations should be aware of, such as :

  • Bullying in the Workplace
  • Fire
  • Manual Handling
  • Carrying out Risk Assessments

We have laid out detailed information in relation to the above topics, and many more, to guide Organisations in best practice health and safety in their workplace. We have provided definitions, guides to the Act, and examples of numerous topics which Organisations may come up against in their workplace.

The Directors will specifically ensure that :

The required risk assessments are undertaken.
They provide employees with a safe working environment, work equipment and methods of working.
Employees are encouraged to report any hazard or potential hazard that could cause harm.

The ultimate responsibility for our commitment to this policy lay with the Directors of KY&Y Consulting. However we expect every employee to give their full cooperation to this policy, and to take reasonable care for their own safety and that of others involved in or affected by our activities. This includes all sub-contractors, consultants or visitors. We also expect any visitors to KY&Y Consulting to abide by this policy.

We will give health and safety equal priority to all other business objectives.

The Directors will review the effectiveness of this policy at least annually in order to ensure that the business remains compliant with relevant legislation. We will bring all changes to this policy to the attention of our employees as necessary.

We are therefore committed to :

Developing and maintaining a culture of health and safety throughout the organisation.
Operating to the highest health and safety standards, with legal compliance as the minimum.
Reviewing our health and safety performance and management.
Providing the instruction, training and supervision to our employees as necessary.
Bringing this policy to the attention of all of our employees and ensuring that they understand their own responsibilities for health and safety in the workplace.
