 Safety Policy;

Thunderbolt Technical Services safety policy demands all members of the site works team to have a general responsibility for safety on site and a duty to take responsible care for their own health and safety, for that of their fellow members of staff and for those operatives and anyone else who may be affected by their decisions, acts and omissions when on duty. They have a duty to co-operate with other persons in similar discharge of those responsibilities.

The team leader/site agent on our assignments also doubles as a safety officer, and has specific responsibility for ensuring compliance with rules and regulations governing health and safety at work, the safe and proper conduct of operations, for promoting awareness of welfare, health and safety on site in respect of all aspects of the works.
