Health & Safety Policy

Health and safety is our prime consideration. Our management recognises the importance of and are committed to ensuring a safe working environment for all our employees in the workplace and anyone affected during any work we undertake on site.

We consistently maintain the highest possible Health and Safety standards in the best interests of our workforce and customers. All of our operatives have achieved “Working Safety in M & E” qualifications and have SKILLcard/CITB certificates. We are REFCOM elite registered and all of our engineers hold individual registration. Our engineers are trained in-house on providing quality work carried out in a safe and efficient manner, to result in total customer satisfaction. Such thorough training enables us to work safely in a range of environments including laboratories, hospitals, airports, computer rooms, schools and universities.

We consider ongoing training all important and to this end, employ outside professional advisors to keep the company up to date with the latest legislation and consequently we frequently exceed the legislative requirements.

We routinely complete risk assessments and method statements prior to the commencement of work.

Watford Refrigeration & Air Conditioning Limited takes its responsibility with regard to environmental issues seriously. We comply with various aspects of regulatory requirements including:

Watford Refrigeration & Air Conditioning is licensed to carry hazardous waste and is certified with the Environmental Agency.


It is the Company's policy to do all that is reasonably practicable to protect the Health & Safety of all employees whilst at work and that of the members of the public or contractors in so far as they come into contact with the Company's activities and premises.

The Directors and Management of the Company have the responsibility, as far as reasonably practicable, to ensure:-

The Company will monitor its management of Health & Safety in a planned manner and ensure that information is fed back to all levels of management.

The Directors of the Company will ensure that:

Having defined the Company's responsibilities, it is important to recognise that all employees have a statutory obligation and responsibility to co-operate in the maintenance of healthy and safe working conditions (Section 7 of the Health & Safety at Work Act 1974). In short, Health & Safety is the responsibility of all employees, at all levels.

It cannot be stressed enough therefore, that the Company Health & Safety Policy has to be a meaningful document and one that must be fully implemented. To do this requires the co-operation of everyone and enthusiasm in meeting the requirements of this Policy document.

This policy will be revised: when there are major changes in the size and nature of the business, when necessary to take into account new legislation, and following any significant health and safety-related incident or near-miss. To ensure that the policy remains up-to-date, it will be formally reviewed at least once per year.
