Our Commitment to Health and Safety
Health and safety is our number one concern, both for our staff, supply chain partners, clients and for the general public. We therefore work tirelessly to achieve safe working conditions and to continuously improve our standards of health and safety.
A comprehensive H&S policy
It is our stated policy to ensure that all our work locations are safe and that all our work practices conform to H&S best practice. This policy extends from our offices to our project sites and includes all journeys made as part of our business. Our commitment covers all staff, contractors, suppliers and the general public who may come into contact with our work activities. Overall, we champion a Valuing Life culture, which we consider as being crucial to the overall success of the Company. We undertake regular reviews of our safety policy and instigate improvement, as necessary.
Putting our policies into practice
To deliver safe working for all, we ensure that our H&S teams have all the resources and support they need. For each piece of work we undertake, we first identify the risks inherent in the project and then set out clear procedures for the project’s safe management. We also operate a 24-hour confidential health and safety helpline providing sensible safety solutions and advice.
Proactive H&S systems and training
Our SSIP accredited Safety Management System provides the cornerstone of our Valuing Life commitment and ensures compliance with all current legislation and standards. The system is complemented by our in-house H&S training team, which delivers CITB, IOSH and ROSPA-accredited training, alongside UKATA-certified courses designed to provide the knowledge and information people need to implement accident-free work environments.
