Health & Safety Policy

MasterMac Surfacing Limited is a contracting company which is involved in the application on site of coated bitumen road stone. The work is undertaken by competent asphalt crews where MasterMac Surfacing Limited either supply mechanical plant or where other contractors supply their own mechanical plant. 

The company undertakes projects for multi national companies, local authorities and private developers. The type of work varies from project to project. The work will usually be under the instruction of the client and in the majority of cases any traffic management will be undertaken by the Client or the Client’s Representative, unless otherwise previously agreed. 

Coated road stone is delivered to site by licensed subcontracted Hauliers usually agreed by our clients. MasterMac Surfacing Limited regularly reviews the performance of the hauliers when directly employed or contracted by MasterMac Surfacing Limited. 

All the asphalt crews have several years experience. The safety performance of all the asphalt crews is regularly monitored by MasterMac Surfacing Limited, Health and Safety Manager, Supervisors and Foremen. 

MasterMac Surfacing Limited owned mechanical plant is regularly maintained by our team of fitters. All MasterMac Surfacing Limited fitters carry out works to the manufacturers specifications at all times. 

The Directors take and encourage personal ownership of safety at all levels. Our supervisors also undertake to maintain the highest safety standards. 

The company recognizes the importance of employing competent employees and has contributed to increasing the performance of our company by undertaking an extensive training programmed including Safe Pass, First Aid and plant operator training, and any other relevant training as the needs arise. 

Our goal is to achieve leadership in sustainable health, safety and environmental best practice and to promote a safe and healthy working environment for all our stakeholders, clients, employees, subcontractors and visitors. Our policy is to integrate this goal and our corporate values, programme and practices into each of our regions and businesses. Our performance targets are set annually, based on continuous improvement and meeting our legal duties under Health and Safety legislation, as defined under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1975 and the Construction, Design and Management Regulations 2015. The Company’s Health and Safety Policy is drawn up by the 

Directors and the responsibility for implementing this policy rest with our management. 

The Company is fully committed to promoting a safe and healthy working environment where workplace bullying is an unacceptable practice that will not be tolerated within this organization and which recognizes that our employees, and temporary workers are an important asset to the success of the business. The Company shall provide the necessary supervision, training information, guidance, technical assistance and resources to encourage personal ownership of the Policy. It is based upon developing a healthy, safe and environmentally responsible culture, skill enhancement, consultation with our workforce and providing the best advice available. 

To achieve our goal the Directors shall monitor and review the success of the Policy based on the best working practices and meet our obligations to comply with current health, safety and environmental legislation. We believe that our company’s safety, health and environmental strategy makes good business sense. 

We believe that all damaging occurrences are preventable and that no process, in any of our operations, is so urgent or so important that we cannot find an environmentally sound, healthy and safe way of carrying it out. 

We personally commit MasterMac Surfacing Limited to this Policy and I task all employees with the personal responsibility to achieve our goal.
