Orbit is committed to providing high standards of health and safety at all times. We recognise our moral and legal duty to protect the health, safety and welfare of our employees, customers, service users and any others who are affected by the acts of the organisation in its day-to-day operations.
Our vision - to lead in building thriving communities - is directly linked to this. In order to achieve our vision, we must commit to ensuring the health and safety of all those involved in our work, or who live or work in our properties and communities.
Our health and safety performance will be measured by clear and quantifiable set objectives. The aim is to achieve a progressively continuous improvement in the overall standards of our health and safety performance.
To do this, Orbit will invest in adequate resources which will help us to develop and maintain our policies and procedures. This will ensure we provide workplaces where a positive health and safety culture supports the elimination of risk to prevent injury or loss.
Health and safety is an integral part of our management function, and we make the safety of our workforce and customers paramount. All personnel are responsible for the implementation of this policy and every employee has a role to play in its success.
We will actively engage all employees through consultation, communication and an effective health and safety management system across its workplaces.
Orbit will enable and encourage all employees to make a positive contribution, ensuring it is an organisation that provides a positive safe and healthy environment in which to live and work.
