Health and Safety Management Systems

We work with an outside consultant, 'Business Safe', who provides consultancy advice as well as a web based portal. This allows us to host files such as policies and the accident book, and ensures tasks such as reviews and periodic checks are assigned and maintained.

The NBC Staff Health & Safety manual contains documents standards and guidance for the various health and safety policies, programmes and procedures established by NBC; and delivered to staff during their comprehensive induction programme.  

Its purpose is to assist in the identification and control of workplace hazards and thereby promote a safe and healthy environment for employees, clients and all third parties. The programmes and procedures documented here have been developed specifically by NBC in accordance with the applicable legislation and good safety practice.
