Health & Safety Policy
Who This Applies To
We Are Tilt Limited’s Health and Safety Policy applies to the Tilt offices, and authorised remote working. Tilt are committed to protecting employees and others such as contractors and visitors from health and safety risks associated with our activities.
As part of our Suppliers Agreement, we expect our suppliers and partners to have a clear health and safety policy statement in place as a minimum requirement.
Our aim is to create a proactive safety and wellbeing culture, the ideal being that occupational injuries and illnesses are foreseeable and preventable. We expect all of our people and visitors to act in a manner that demonstrates their personal commitment to this aim.
Responsibility and Accountability
The Office Manager will ensure policies are documented, communicated, implemented and maintained. The most senior person on site is ultimately accountable for the health, safety and wellbeing of Tilt employees, contractors and visitors at that location, regardless of function or reporting line. All levels of line management are responsible for making sure that resources are available to implement the health and safety standards, and ensure that we are all able to comply with them.
How to Report a Breach
Any breach of this Policy should be reported promptly to any Manager or Director. All employees, contractors and visitors are encouraged to challenge risk-taking behaviour and report breaches in health and safety.
All documentation and records generated such as through incident management processes, must be created and secured in accordance with our GDPR policy
