M&N Cleaning and Fumigation Health & Safety Policy

M & N Cleaning and Fumigation Services Ltd is committed to the provision of quality services and products by well-trained and supervised staff observing safe-working practices designed to protect the health and safety of all our employees, our customers and the public. Securing this commitment is an important management objective that contributes to our business performance.

The Operations Manager ensures that adequate arrangements are made to maintain a written health and safety management system. The management system identifies the responsibilities of all technicians and details the arrangements both for the control of hazards that could arise from the activities of their operations and the communication of health and safety matters. The system also includes arrangements for monitoring and reviewing health and safety performance not only to comply with legal requirements but also to secure progressive improvements.

The Operations Manager provides health, safety and medical advice to Directors and is responsible for ensuring that regular auditing of every business’s health and safety management system is carried out.

We remind all employees that they have a personal responsibility for their own health and safety and that of other people who may be affected by the work they do. They must therefore adhere to the safe working practices detailed in their technical handbook or operations manual, and co-operate fully with their managers on any matter relating to health and safety.
