Our Health, Safety & Welfare Policy

It is the policy of Wills Tree Services that employees and sub-contractors, including others, are protected so far as is reasonably practicable from risks to health and safety arising from work during our activities.

This will be achieved by adopting a safety management strategy that will include the provisions of safe working systems and appropriate procedures to cater for all significant risks, providing and maintaining safe working environments that are without risks to health, safety and welfare.

Wills Tree Services will comply with current applicable occupational health and safety legislation including other requirements to which the company subscribes to meet its responsibilities as a company and employer and to do all that is reasonably practicable to prevent accidents, injuries and damage to health.

This policy will be supported by the issue of company safety rules, policies and general procedures. These will each be subject to review and revision by Chris Wills (company owner/manager), in conjunction with the company’s appointed competent person for health and safety.

The health, safety and welfare policies and arrangements for Wills Tree Services will be publicised to all employees. It is the duty of all employees not only to read these documents carefully but to take an active interest in achieving a high standard of health safety at work.

Chris Wills (company owner/manager), will be at hand to answer and explain any questions or queries any staff member or sub contractor may have regarding the health and safety policies within the company. In order to ensure that this general statement is achieved, Chris Wills (company owner/manager) will actively and constantly develop, review and encourage the company health, safety and welfare polices both internally and externally by providing the necessary information, instruction and training to employees and sub-contractors to ensure their competence with respect to health and safety.

When new substances, machinery, equipment, processes or work sites are introduced, Wills Tree Services will provide adequate guidance, instruction and training to ensure all staff and sub-contractors have developed safe working methods and are aware of their own responsibilities in respect of relevant health and safety matters ensuring they participate in the prevention of accidents, incidents and fully engage with company policies to prevent related industrial injuries or disease.

Wills Tree Services will provide adequate guidance, instruction and training to ensure all staff and sub-contractors work positively and safely with all of our customers, including other stake holder companies and/or individuals to understand their health and safety needs and meet requirements.

We give all staff working for or on behalf of Wills Tree Services the right to refuse to work where they have any health and safety concerns.

This policy is communicated to all staff and sub-contractors and is available publicly via our website:

This health, safety and welfare policy statement will be reviewed and updated on an ongoing basis to ensure its continued effectiveness. If you have any queries regarding this statement or any other company policies please email your questions to
