Health and Safety Policy
As your employer we have to provide a written Health and Safety General Policy. This policy reflects the legal requirements to be fulfilled on Health and Safety. This section outline the format from which our Health and Safety statement of intent emanates. To ensure we attain a high standard of Health and Safety within the company, the Health and Safety General Policy has been collated identifying key aspects which we seek to attain and is outlined below.
Battalio believes that one of its most important functions is the prevention of accidents and ill health. We do not wish any of our employees or any other person to suffer as the result of our activities or work processes. To this end, we intend to comply rigorously with all Health and Safety legislation, Codes of Practice, best guidance and work methods available, in accordance with the Health and Safety Act. The Health and Safety policy and manuals we have prepared indicate the ways in which we intend to meet with legal requirement.
Legislation requires that, as an employer , we prepare a statement of General Policy with respect to the Health and Safety of our employees, together with details of the organisation and arrangement that we have set up to carry out that policy.

we also ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, that the way we carry out our work does not affect the Health and Safety of persons who are not our employees, for example visitor and contractors.
