It is the policy at DC Print to respect the environment,
and to be committed to and responsible for the environmental performance
of the company.
We ensure that all employees
are trained and developed to understand, implement, maintain and
improve the environmental objectives set by the company.
Where possible the
company reduce, re-use, and recycle all materials to minimise
waste and use environmentally responsible suppliers and sub-contractors
in order to minimise the use of polluting releases and use energy
as efficiently as possible.
The company strives to comply, at minimum, with
all regulatory and legislative requirements, and to this end this
policy is reviewed and updated as required.
DC Print is committed to equal and fair opportunities and treatment
for all individuals, and will actively promote the positive aspects
of diversity and encourage acceptance and appreciation of individual
All job applicants and employees will be treated
equally, regardless of:
Ethnic or national origins

Religion or belief
This policy applies to:
Conditions of work
Recruitment and appointments
And all other aspects of employment.
The company recognises that everyone has a personal
responsibility for the positive application of equal opportunities
and that all employees, supervisors and managers must ensure that
the equal opportunities policy is applied within any area under
their control, within the framework in place and ensuring legal
requirements. All managers receive training and employees made
aware and understand the policy.
Discrimination, victimisation or harassment are all considered
very serious offences and will be treated as serious misconduct.
All employees will be subject to disciplinary action for failure
to adhere to the policy. If an employee feels that he or she has
suffered discrimination in any way, the company's grievance procedure
should be utilised and the matter will be investigated.
and Safety Policy
The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 imposes certain obligations
on an employer not only to take all such actions as are reasonable
to safeguard the health and safety of their employees, but also
to be able to show that they are doing so, by producing adequate
written policies and procedures.
The Act refers to what is reasonable in given
working situations. DC Print will:
Assess the risks in the workplace.
Have written health and safety procedures
Ensure that the workplace satisfies health, safety and welfare
requirements for ventilation, temperature, lighting and staff
Ensure safe and clear access to and exit from the building, including
Regularly check the premises room by room for structural defects,
worn fixture and fittings or electrical equipment, and take the
necessary remedial action.
Ensure that all equipment is suitable for its intended use and
is properly maintained and used.
Ensure that all staff are aware of the fire procedure and regular
fire drills are carried out.
Ensure that all members of staff are aware of the procedure in
case of accidents.
Ensure that all members of staff are aware of and carry out their
health and safety responsibilities as set out in their job descriptions.
Prohibit smoking on the premises.
Prohibit any contractor working on the premises without prior
discussion with the officer in charge to negate any risks to the
staff or users.
The Management considers this matter of such importance, that
breach of health and safety procedures by staff constitutes misconduct
and will be dealt with as a disciplinary matter.
Employees will also be made aware of their responsibilities
under the Health and Safety at Work Act and will:
Take reasonable care of their own health and safety and that of
others around them.
Co-operate with the employer on matters of health and safety
Use work equipment correctly
Provide guidance to users and act responsibly to ensure their
health and safety
Users will also be made aware of their responsibilities
Agree to use the equipment in a safe manner with regard to the
health and safety of those around them
Staff and management must constantly be mindful of their responsibilities
individually and collectively for the safety of themselves and
DC Print constantly seeks to provide clients with
the best service and printed material that we possibly can.
From the moment the company receives a project, it is closely
monitored through each stage of the production process, ensuring
that the high standards clients expect are consistently met.
Each department within the company has a department manager, who
is responsible for ensuring that each project is fully supervised
and constantly checked through each stage of production. Every
project is issued a job bag with a quality assurance tick list
which needs to be completed at every stage of production and signed
for by the operative who carried out the work. All jobs are then
checked by the department manager before they can move onto the
next stage of production. This method of quality assurance helps
to ensure that projects are completed quickly and efficiently
without compromising the high standards of quality and value for
money the company offers.
DC Print is dedicated to ensuring that our printed
products meet our customers' requirements, and do so by making
sure that we agree fully what our customers want, then apply rigorous
processes to make sure we deliver both in terms of product and
We believe in the concept of the customer and the supplier working
together in pursuing this policy and continually striving for
improvements in quality. All the company's employees must have
a positive commitment to quality and respond quickly and effectively
to achieve the performance standards required of them to get it
right first time.
The quality policy is based on these following fundamental principles.
The definition of quality is conforming to requirements having
specified very carefully the needs of our customers and giving
due account of our own processes and to that of our suppliers.
The system of Quality Management concentrates on prevention, looking
at our processes, identifying the opportunities for error and
taking action to eliminate them.
The measurement of quality is the cost of non-conformity and the
eventual cost of getting it right.
The quality policy means that the company’s processes will
be monitored and maintained in a continuous improvement programme,
enabling us to offer customers reliability, flexibility, honesty,
approachability, creativity and the ability to produce an appropriate
quality product at the right price and time.
