The purpose of this statement is to encourage ownership, commitment and adherence to all levels of the business and provide a framework for establishing and reviewing Health and Safety objectives appropriate to the strategy of the company. Geo-Info’s Management Board recognises, and is fully committed to, its legal and moral Health and Safety obligations.

The development of a positive company-wide safety culture is essential to continued success. Therefore, as an integral part of its business process Geo-Info Ltd will:
- Adhere to EU directives, regulations and promote best practice by developing and implementing company strategies, policies and processes that will help us to manage our responsibilities.

- Comply with any statutory and common law duty to provide insurance against liability for death, injury or disease suffered by any employee arising out of and in the course of employment.
- Ensure that employees agree as part of their contract of employment, to comply with their individual duties under the law. Failure to comply with Health and Safety duties, regulations, local procedures etc will be regarded as a serious breach and may lead to disciplinary action being taken. At all times work, Geo-Info will work collaboratively with Union representatives and communicate initiatives and improvements through them to staff and customers alike.
- In accordance with Article 9 of the Framework Directive and national laws/regulations such as the Reporting of Diseases Dangerous Occurrence Regulations 1995 (As amended); implement a system for the recording and reporting of accidents, diseases and dangerous occurrences to the national responsible authority (HSE in the UK).
