Health & Safety
We operate a comprehensive Health & Safety Policy and we are CHAS, Safecontractor accredited and certified to OHSAS18001:2007. This sets out our safe systems of work and incorporates site specific RAMS that define how we will work safely.
We create and sustain an awareness of the importance of H&S matters via our ‘My Compliance’ reporting database, which pro-actively encourages our staff to report incidents or near misses as part of our H&S management procedures. We view incidents as a learning process from which we can improve safety standards across our contracts and create a positive Health and Safety culture within our workforce.
