Our suppliers and contractors have a significant role to play in ensuring our high level of performance in each area.
The exact requirements we ask of you will vary, depending on the product or service you supply.
Please understand that SHEQ is one of our principal drivers when selecting or managing supply to BOC.
All BOC suppliers must meet the following general requirements:
- we expect you to operate a business which, as a minimum, complies with all applicable safety standards and legislation
- when you are on a BOC site, or working with BOC equipment, we expect you to have the correct skills, training and procedures to perform in a manner which minimises risk
- where BOC has a particular work instruction, policy or process you must ensure it is understood by the appropriate personnel in your company and that it is complied with at all times
- if you are uncertain of what is expected of you, please ask a BOC member of staff
- we expect that all members of your company working on behalf of BOC are appropriately monitored for health risk
- you must seriously consider whether it is appropriate to supply an individual to work on a BOC site, or to work with BOC equipment, if that individual has a medical condition which could affect their ability to perform their job safely and effectively. If such a person is supplied to BOC, then BOC must be made aware of the matter.
