This policy establishes and communicates the Company's policy concerning the protection of safety and health of the Company's employees and other persons affected by the Company's business activities.

The Directors of Ashtead Technology recognise that our people are our key resource and that the promotion and improvement of a positive Health and Safety culture is essential to the management and success of the business.

The CEO accepts overall responsibility for Safety Performance within Ashtead Technology. The senior management for each business and location will be responsible for the safety performance within their sphere of responsibility. Everyone within Ashtead Technology is responsible to ensure that they take reasonable care of their own health and safety and the safety of others.
