J & P Deconstruction has developed and continues to develop various policies and procedures for the benefit all those that work and are associated with the company.
It is important that all employees and sub-contractors familiarise themselves with all company policies and procedures as listed below.
It is also important that company policies and procedures are reviewed from time to time as they are updated.
A policy or procedure will be implemented by means of the following:
The setting of appropriate company standards to maintain safe systems or work. Where statutory requirements, codes or standards exist, J & P Deconstruction's standards will meet or exceed them.
A regular review and upgrading of J & P Deconstruction’s standards to reflect changes.
Consultation with employees of their responsibilities for safety and health at work.
Informing all employees of their responsibilities for safety and health matters and to ensure that they discharge them effectively.
Advising contractors of their responsibilities for the health and safety of their employees whilst on J & P Deconstruction’s premises or performing tasks on behalf of J & P Deconstruction.
Compliance with the policy will be monitored by regular auditing.

WORK PLAN & SAFETY MANAGEMENT
As with all deconstruction projects, the emphasis is on team work within J&P Deconstruction. Discussion on all issues concerning Occupational Safety & Health are a pre-requisite when commencing each project.
