Exel Contracts Ltd

Committed to Health & Safety

Exel Contracts Limited recognises and accepts its health and safety duties for providing a safe and healthy working environment for its workers and other visitors to its premises as well as the health and safety of all the working sites visited by its staff under the Health and safety at Work Act 1974, the Fire Precautions (workplace) Regulations 1997, the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 (as amended 2006) and other relevant legislation and common law duties of care.

People are the most important asset to this company, and therefore we are totally committed to ensuring their health, safety and welfare at all times.

From a legal perspective, Exel Contracts is committed to ensuring that it complies with all
relevant health and safety legislation and ensure that all staff are kept updated on any
changes and all such changes are documented. Where it is reasonably practicable to do so,
the company will strive to go beyond the requirements of legislation.

Exel Contracts is committed to ongoing monitoring and review processes, so that continual improvement in the management of health and safety can be achieved.
