The Company has a rigorous policy of safe working throughout and employs the services of a dedicated in house Health, Safety, Environment and Training Team. The health and safety policy and procedures are communicated to all staff and subcontractors through induction training, memos, regular site inspections by the Health & Safety Manager and regular toolbox talks. The policy and procedures are reviewed regularly to ensure compliance with all relevant standards and industry best practice.
Employees regularly attend specialist safety courses, including The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015, and all operatives have taken the health & safety touch screen test to achieve CSCS cards as a minimum, with the majority going on to complete their NVQ's in Plant Operating (CPCS) and specific activities such as drainage, kerb laying, concreting, etc.
We are accredited to a number of schemes that promote health and safety as a core activity in the construction industry:
- The Contractors Health & Safety Assessment Scheme (CHAS) developed by local authority health & safety and procurement professionals, supported by the HSE.
- Safecontractor, an independently managed and accredited scheme that assesses the health & safety competency of contractors and service providers.
- British Safety Council (BSC) is one of the world's leading workplace health, safety and environmental organisations providing up-to-date and accurate information and guidance on health, safety and environmental issues.
