HEALTH AND SAFETY STATEMENT
Traffic Surveys UK takes the matter of health and safety very seriously. Our business activity involves elements of manual work, operating in live traffic conditions, and working in public places.
Work is carried out in such a way as to adhere to Health and Safety Law. Best practice is applied to help us work safely and comfortably. This helps to ensure that the risks posed by hazards are minimised or eliminated altogether, to allow us to work in a practicably safe manner.
The welfare of all concerned in the course of our work is equally important - whether it be our employees or those affected by the work we do. We take care in our work and afford reasonable assistance to ensure that our employees and those affected by our work are safe.
Our employees are trained in the work they do. All employees are made aware of the health and safety aspects of their work. Upon commissioning of a job, a comprehensive brief is supplied to all employees and team members. In particular, hazards and the risks posed by those hazards are identified. The assessment of hazards, risks, and mitigation measures is carried out using our internal TSUK Risk Assessment pro-forma. Practical measures are always taken to ensure that all concerned can work in a safe manner.
Safe and appropriate equipment, including personal protective equipment are provided as a mandatory measure. Training both on- and off-site is provided in the use of all equipment. Additional training is provided upon introduction of new equipment or procedures, or changes in equipment or procedures, and when an identifiable need arises.
Our equipment, procedures, and current legislation are constantly reviewed to ensure that we carry out our work in a safe manner and in accordance with current legislation. Any reports of incidents or accidents or even sightings of hazardous or dangerous situations will be taken very seriously and investigated with a view to rectifying the situation.
ENVIRONMENTAL POLICY STATEMENT
Traffic Surveys UK recognises the importance and significance of contemporary environmental issues.
Our corporate stance whole-heartedly embraces the ethos and practices of respecting the environment and supporting any initiatives that protect the environment and/or minimise the impact on the environment. Recognising that we are part of a regional, national, and global community, our focus is on practical contributions for a sustainable future – doing our small part.
Most of our activities have some form of direct, indirect, or remote impact on the environment:
• Energy use at our offices (gas and electricity)
• Water use
• Paper use (for printing and production)
• Diesel fuel for our company vehicles
Whilst efficient use of resources makes sound business sense, we pro-actively and consciously carry out our activities to make a positive contribution for supporting and upholding a sustainable future.
Those contributions encompass the following practical measures:
• We pro-actively control our (electricity and gas) energy use using simple techniques such as not using lights that are not necessary.
• We minimise the amount of water we use where possible, for positive remote effects at the production source.
• Our paper usage (for printing and production) is kept to a minimum, including avoiding printing emails and attachments where practical – the reverse side of pre-printed (scrap) paper is re-used for new draft copies.
• Our printer is only switched on when needed for actual printing.
• Our company vehicles are selected with fuel economy in mind.
• Our vehicles are Euro-IV compliant for the London LEZ. A full list of our vehicles with their registration numbers will be supplied upon request. • Journeys and routes are planned to both save time on the road and minimise the amount of particulate pollution owing to mileage and idling.
