Health and safety is an important aspect of our business achievements.
Our commitment is to provide a safe and healthy environment for all our employees, the public and our clients.
We have the ISO 9001 quality standard for our procedures and CHAS for our Health and Safety systems, for which we pride ourselves on our vigilance and low tolerance of non co-operation, both from employees and sub contractors.
Our training policy further supports this aspect in ensuring our employees have the competence required, and we continue to promote Health and Safety in all areas of our work, and we committed over 300 work days to training last year - more than most organisations of our size, and in the top bracket of reputable companies for training per employee.
Our dedicated Health and Safety team audit that all employees and sub-contractors are trained and competent, through regular site visits and that the correct practices ensuring the safety of our staff and the public is maintained.
Management staff have over 30 years' experience in the industry and are qualified to IOSH and NEBOSH. They promote a 'top down' approach by ensuring site supervisors have a thorough understanding of H&S, and can cascade this knowledge throughout the workforce. A visible cmmitment from the management team has embedded an excellent health and safety culture. By training staff, reviewing policies/procedures, and visually inspecting H&S on site (acts and conditions), management demonstrate and promote a positive attitude to safety. Our open-door policy also supports employees to raise any issues, and to provide input unti RAMS and working procedures; for example, 'you said, we did' boards where people write suggestions which are reviewed internally and implemented. Anonymous reporting procedures also promote a good H&S culture, and an open and honest approach to H&S, as staff can alert management staff to any concerns or issues via anonymous postcards, sent directly to head office.
