Health & Safety Statement of Intent

AFCC Limited is a responsible employer and we recognise and accept our legal duties to ensure so far as is reasonably practicable the health, safety, and welfare of all our employees whilst at work.

We also recognise that we have a responsibility towards the health and safety of members of the public, contractors, and visitors who may be affected by our actions or inactions.

It is our policy to ensure, so far, as is reasonably practicable:

  • The provision and maintenance of vehicles, plant, machinery, equipment and systems of work that are safe and without risk to health;
  • The provision and maintenance of arrangements for the handling, storage, transport, use and disposal of articles and substances that are safe and without risks to health;
  • The provision of information, instruction, training and supervision as is necessary to secure the health safety and welfare of all employees whilst at work;
  • The working environment of all employees is and remains safe and without risk to health and adequate facilities and arrangements are made for their welfare at work; and
  • Effective communication channels are established and maintained throughout the organisation to promote all aspects of health, safety, and welfare.

To achieve these aims we will ensure that responsibilities for health and safety are properly assigned, accepted, and fulfilled.

In particular, we will ensure that suitable and sufficient risk assessments are carried out, and any additional risk control measures identified as necessary are effectively implemented.

Whilst management will ensure so far as is reasonably practicable the health, safety and welfare of its employees, it also recognises that to achieve the aims set out in this statement, the assistance and co-operation of our employees is essential.

Specifically it is the duty of every employee at work to:

  • Take care of their own health and safety and the health and safety of other persons who might be affected by their acts or omissions;
  • To co-operate with management as far as is necessary to enable health and safety requirements to be complied with; and
  • Not to misuse or intentionally damage any item provided in the interests of health and safety.

This Statement of Intent will be reviewed annually from the date of first issue, or when significant changes have occurred

 

Environmental Statement of Intent

AFCC Limited is a responsible company and continuously seeks to minimise its impact on the environment. The company seeks constantly to improve its environmental performance by reducing its negative impact on the environment. The company delivers real benefits and results to its customers and one of its aims is to do the same to the environment.

We aim to minimise the impact that our operations have on the environment and to prevent pollution wherever possible. For those operations that are office / premises based we are committed to reducing our waste streams, increasing our recycling schemes and reduce wastage of utility supplies

For those operations where we are required to attend client premises we will endeavour to ensure so far as is practicable that journeys are properly planned to ensure less mileage is covered where possible. We will also aim to ensure that all vehicles are kept under planned preventative maintenance programmes and that they are at optimum working condition at all times to avoid or reduce emissions

Where financially possible we will ensure that all vehicles used on company business are of the best available standard on the market to reduce environmental impact from their use whether these are owned or leased

We are committed to managing our procurement functions and supply chains pro-actively and in such a way as to deliver environmental benefits alongside financial ones by developing better and more efficient relationships with suppliers and wherever possible clients.

As a minimum we will comply with all applicable legal environmental requirements and our aim shall be to continuously reach standards above these requirements and industry standards

Wherever practical we will respond to environmental concerns raised by our clients, suppliers and any other relevant interested parties in a swift manner

We will endeavour to raise environmental awareness with our staff and the ways in which their actions can contribute to achieving the company’s environmental objectives

As Director, I will set the company’s environmental targets and objectives, which shall be reviewed quarterly.

Results will be communicated to all members of staff and published on our website

Privacy and Cookies

Introduction

We respect the privacy of individuals and organisations who use AFCC Limited Website, whether just visiting the Site or purchasing goods and services. Just as importantly, we want to ensure that any critical information you provide us with (such as debit/credit card details) remains secure and cannot be accessed by outside parties.

The following information tells you more about the information we collect from you and how it is used.

How we obtain and use your information

We collect your information in a number of ways, and by providing us with data you consent to us using it for all activities associated with AFCC Limited services. If you do not wish your information to be used for any specific activities then you must notify us of this.

We obtain and use information from you when you register with us, select preferences, update your profile, use the website and through any other forms of communication. Some information which we request, such as user preferences, is entirely optional, although providing us with this information will allow us to provide you with a better service.

Visitors to the Site

As a visitor you can access some parts of the Site without the need to register. However, as part of our standard monitoring procedures and in common with the vast majority of commercial websites, we are able to access some information from some visitors. This is mostly incomplete information and (except in very rare circumstances) would not allow us to identify the visitor. This information is not stored, but total numbers are aggregated in order for us to identify traffic levels and visitors' general preferences towards the Site's features.

Clients, Newsletter Subscribers and Support Clients

To fully use our services as a Client, Newsletter Subscriber or Support Client, you will need to register using our Online Registration Form, where you will be required to provide us with your contact information (including email address), some other information relating to your organisation and preferences which denote your interests applicable to the areas with which we provide services and information.

Information which is required to become a member of AFCC Limited Site includes name, job title, company name and address, email address, and telephone number.

You can amend any personal information in your personal profile at any time.

Use of your information

We use the information you provide to manage the service, contact you and serve personalised content.

We automatically track certain information about you based upon your behaviour on our site. We use this information to assist with internal research on our users' demographics, interests and behaviour to better understand and serve our clients.

We use preferences which you select yourself to deliver the most appropriate content and marketing and customise the service we provide to you.

We may also use this information to send you editorial or promotional communications via email. You will be given an opportunity to opt out of receiving these communications if you wish to.

Payment processing

You can purchase products, “elearning” courses, book on courses and services on the site by making payments online. We use a third party supplier to process online payments, which are transacted on a secure server using SSL (secure sockets layer). The company we use is Cardsave, one of the country’s largest and most highly renowned e-commerce transaction and payment companies.

When you purchase goods or services from us online, you are transferred to Cardsave's secure server environment where the whole transaction is processed. You will be informed that you are entering a secure environment (demonstrated by the padlock symbol) and the URL will change to https://... on Cardsave’s secure server.

If we process an online credit card transaction on your behalf, the personal credit or debit card information you provide us with is only used for the purpose of processing that transaction, and is not stored on our system.

At no time during the online payment process are we provided with your personal credit or debit card information, which is processed and encrypted completely by Cardsave. AFCC Limited does not store sensitive financial information on customer purchases, nor is it at any time made available to us.
