Equal Opportunities Policy

Bennetts Cranes aims to be an inclusive organisation where everyone is treated with respect and dignity, and where there is equal opportunity for all. This means that all our staff should understand and respect that there is a diverse workforce and that everyone has the right to be treated with dignity and equality. Bennetts Cranes respects and values the diversity of its staff and provides conditions of employment as required by the Equality Act 2010. Valuing diversity means that we recognise that we all have complex identities made up of different strands, including but not limited to, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, age, physical and mental aptitudes, nationality, socio-economic status and religious, political and other beliefs.

 

QEHS Policy

Bennetts Cranes is a tower crane business that hires and sells cranes with or without operators for client-based projects within the construction industry. Bennetts Cranes provides a full service of erection, dismantling and repair of tower cranes including cranes owned by clients. Bennetts is committed to ensuring that quality, environmental, health and safety standards are at the forefront of everything we do.

Anyone working for or on behalf of Bennetts Cranes is required to operate in accordance with our policies and procedures. This policy will be regularly maintained, reviewed and distributed to all associated parties.

 

Slavery and Human Trafficking Policy

Bennetts Cranes takes a zero-tolerance approach to the violation of human rights through slavery, servitude, forced and compulsory labour and human trafficking. We are committed to professionally, fairly and with integrity treating all of our business dealings and relationships. We are committed to ensure transparency in our own business and in our approach to tackling modern slavery throughout our supply chains, consistent with the Modern Slavery Act 2015.

 

Bribery and Corruption Policy

Bennetts Cranes’ corporate conduct is based on our commitment to acting professionally, fairly and with integrity. Bennetts Cranes does not tolerate any form of bribery or corruption. This policy applies to all Bennetts Cranes employees, staff and sub-contractors. Employees are encouraged to raise any concerns of malpractice at the earliest possible time, in total confidence to our managing director. We advocate laws including the Bribery Act 2010, to counter bribery and corruption in all areas in which we operate.

 

Supplier Control

Upon appointment of a new supplier, a Supplier Details Form R1 and a Supplier Questionnaire R1 is sent for completion. On return these are reviewed by the Purchasing Department and QEHS Manager prior to purchasing any items. Every 12 months a Supplier Review R1 questionnaire will be sent out for completion to keep details up-to-date and to determine the continuation of purchases.

 

Risk Assessment

The organisation will ensure a systemic approach to identifying hazards, assessing the risks, determining suitable and sufficient control measures and informing employees of the correct procedures needed to maintain a safe working environment.

We will provide, so far as is reasonably practicable, safe places and systems of work, safe plant and machinery, safe handling of materials and substances, the provision of adequate safety equipment and ensure that appropriate information, instruction, training and supervision is given.
