Health & Safety
A critical element of our business is risk management, be that technical, commercial, environmental or health & safety. Our challenge is to adopt a flexible approach that recognises the significance of these risks to our customers, employees and the general public.
We take this challenge extremely seriously and promote a positive health & safety culture at all times. All our connections are completed to the highest safety and quality standards; hazards, near misses and daily site specific risk assessments form part of our safe systems of work.
Management site safety tours are conducted on all our projects to ensure ongoing compliance. All our managers with operational duties are trained to a minimum of IOSH Managing Safely level and all site operatives hold a current Site Safety Proficiency Card.
Our success is not only measured through ongoing monthly audits and statistical analysis of our safety performance but also through the feedback we receive from our employees and customers. Seeking continuous improvement, we have embarked upon our own Safe Actions for Everyone (SAFE) initiative to promote positive behavioural safety.
In both the workplace and on-site, we are committed to upholding strict environmental standards and ensure minimal disruption and environmental impact. We work considerately alongside other contractors, highway users and residents, and are certified to ISO 14001. We are also accredited to BS OHSAS 18001, a framework for occupational health and safety management.
