All employees will be provided with such equipment, information, training and supervision as is necessary to implement the policy and achieve the stated objective.

The management of ABGl Ltd will provide every employee with the training necessary to can’t out his or her tasks safely. However if an employee is unsure how to perform a certain task or feels it would be dangerous to perform a specific job then it is the employee’s duty to report this to their manager. An effective health and safety programme requires continuous communication between employees at all level. It is therefore every worker’s responsibility to report immediately any situation that could jeopardise the wellbeing of themselves or any other person.

All injuries, however small, sustained by a person at work must be reported to the relevant Supervisor/Foreman in accordance with ABGI Ltd Accident Reporting Policy. Accident records are crucial to the effective monitoring and revision of the policy and must therefore be accurate and

Equal Opportunities Policy


It is the policy of ABGI Ltd not to discriminate against any person on the grounds of their age, colour, race, nationality or ethnic origin. This applies not only to employees, but also to job applicants, customers and suppliers and members of the public.

ABGI Ltd requires employees to treat all people with appropriate courtesy and respect, regardless of their colour, race, nationality or ethnic origins.

The board of Directors have overall responsibility for implementing the policy in accordance with the guidance and procedure set out below.

Implementation of the Policy

Any person who suffers or believes that they have suffered unlawful discrimination is to report this to their immediate superior or other member of the Company’s management for the matter to be dealt with. If it is not resolved to their satisfaction they may take the matter up with any Director if the problem persists.

All personnel are hereby instructed that unlawful discrimination in contravention of the policy will not be tolerated and will be dealt with as a disciplinary issue. This includes anyone who becomes aware discrimination is taking place but does not report it to his or her immediate superior or an appropriate member of management.

Employees are to note that jokes about any person’s colour race, ethnic origin and/or nationality are unacceptable. Some people, often for good reason, are more sensitive than others to remarks about their colour, nationality or racial or ethnic origin.

Supervisors and those responsible for recruitment, training, promotion or redundancy selection have a duty to ensure that all concerned are made aware of this policy.

It is illegal (i.e., a criminal offence) to incite racial hatred and any employee who does so or participates in or condones any such action, will be subject to disciplinary action.

This policy applies to employees not only whilst at work but also in their out of work activities, insofar as these relate to employees, customers or suppliers of the company or as regards any effect on employees’ relationships in the workplace or the Company’s public relations.
