It is the ultimate objective of GSF in partnership with our clients to complete our contract responsibilities by the provision of adequate measures for managing Health & Safety effectively and complying with all the relevant Health & Safety statutory provisions to ensure that no person is placed at significant risk.
Any incident or occurrence or work related ill-health will be viewed as a potential failure of the safety management system, recommendations will be made to ensure that similar incidents do not re-occur. Any employee who enters a client site must co-operate fully with site procedures to achieve this objective.

The supervisor on each specific location will be the Site Health & Safety Co-ordinator for all site activities. They will be supported in this role by the Area Manager and the GSF Health & Safety Manager who will provide any necessary assistance and advice. The Health & Safety representative or client Health & Safety staff should be used for ultimate clarification on Health & Safety matters.
