Health, Safety and Environmental (HSE) Policy
Quadrise Group’s objective is to be our customers’ responsive partner in MSAR® technology and emulsion fuel; contributing to a sustainable future. Quadrise recognises the critical role it plays in the management of health and safety at work and protection of the environment as a whole. Quadrise is therefore committed to the principles of risk management, pollution prevention and undertaking its operations as a responsible corporate member of society.
Quadrise is fully aware that it operates within industries with certain inherent risks and hazards to employees, contractors, visitors, members of the public and the natural environment; as such we are committed to high standards for risk mitigation, accident prevention and control.
The company also recognises the importance of consultation, communication and participation for effective management. As such it will address the concerns of all relevant interested parties within the management system, whilst also encouraging individual employee responsibility for HSE issues.
This policy has been endorsed by the board and the senior management team, who take prime responsibility for allocating sufficient resources to ensure these objectives are achieved.
Through a process of continuous improvement, we will demonstrate our commitment to:
- Complying fully with all relevant HSE legislation, regulations, standards, guidance and codes of practice;
- Ensuring that wherever possible HSE risks and hazards are eliminated or minimised. Where this is not possible the risk/hazard identified shall be controlled commensurate with the scale of the hazard posed;
- Providing and maintaining safe plant, equipment (including PPE), systems of work and work facilities for the welfare of employees;
- Providing sufficient information, instruction, training and supervision for employees to enable them to carry out their tasks competently and safely;

- Ensuring raw materials, articles and wastes are correctly handled, used and stored to avoid damage to the health of employees or the environment;
- Designing products and process facilities in such a way as to minimise their environmental impacts, in production, use and disposal;
- Providing sufficient information to ensure that our products and associated chemicals are handled, used and disposed of in line with relevant legislation;
