The objective of the SWI Limited Health and Safety Policy is to prevent, insofar as it is reasonably practicable to do so, during the course of the work or duties being undertaken, any accidental occurrence resulting in:
- Injury to any person.
- Damage to or loss of any plant, equipment, property, materials or products.

The Policy is applicable to all SWI Limited Employees and all persons whose presence is necessary at SWI Limited premises, construction sites or workplaces. This includes the Employees of Sub-Contractors, Self Employed Persons and Consulting Design Practices.
The application and promotion of the Policy is the responsibility of Senior Management of SWI Limited.

Individuals can make important contributions to the development and implementation of policies and arrangements. SWI Limited will give all opportunities for participation in this process and actively encourages involvement of Employees either directly or through their representatives.
To ensure that this Policy can be successfully implemented, SWI Limited Senior Management will provide such funds as is reasonably necessary.
Suitable and adequate measures shall be taken to safeguard any person, plant, equipment, property, material or product likely to be exposed to any known or suspected hazards associated with or arising out of the processes, tasks or operations being undertaken.

Adequate provision shall be made for the Welfare needs of Employees whilst carrying out their tasks and duties and any hazard to health associated with the work shall be the subject of strict precautionary measures. This is further detailed within Section 6.0 (Construction Arrangements) of the Health and Safety Policy.
This Policy shall be reviewed and kept up to date by Mr S.L. Williams , the Director Responsible for Health and Safety, to take into account changes in legislation, reflect changes in the nature and range of activities carried out by SWI Limited and take advantage of operational experience, negative and positive, as often as may be necessary.
