Safety, Health, Environment & Quality
Health & Safety
It is of paramount importance to the Health and Safety of all concerned that risk of injury or death is managed by ensuring that safe working practices are adopted to their full extent with the aim of achieving zero incidents.
Accidents on sites pose a significant risk to the client’s reputation, financial standing, and delivery of works to programme, particularly when events involve serious injury or death.
Mitigation of risk is achieved through continuous identification of risk combined with development and implementation of various safety incentive schemes designed to improve behavioural safety
Employees are a company’s most important asset and promotion of an active Health and Safety culture offers protection by making the work environment as safe as it can possibly be. This equally applies to the welfare of other contractors, client’s representatives, general public, site visitors and young persons who may be at risk from active operations.
An Occupational Health Management programme includes medical checks, fitness to work assessments, lifestyle examinations and the highest levels of drugs and alcohol testing.
Training is a key investment in successfully meeting these goals, subsequently, all operational employees hold certification relevant to their occupation.
