Health and safety

Continuous improvement in our health, safety and environmental performance is at the core of our business.

The welfare of our customers, our people and our sub-contractors is fundamental to our exceptional service delivery. We’ll always give priority to health, safety and environmental considerations in planning works and day to day activities.

In addition to our own people, our health and safety team educates our customers and sub-contractors. They provide a focal point for specialist knowledge and best practice and monitor, analyse and improve compliance with legal and organisational standards.

Our full programme of in-house delivered Health, Safety and Environmental training includes:  bespoke E-learning modules, 'toolbox talks' for engineers’ team meetings, IOSH Managing Safely, IOSH Working Safely and Energy Management Awareness.

We host a series of topical seminars providing health, safety and environmental advice for all employees and customers. These seminars are delivered nationally and have included ‘Incident prevention’, 'Working at heights' and 'Near-miss reporting'.

Our health, safety and environmental performance is measured by a number of indicators:

  • a series of audits by competent auditors
  • health, safety and environmental inspections by line management
  • near-miss reporting
  • accident rates

Management review of health, safety and the environment is undertaken at all levels from monthly contract reviews, through Business Unit and Divisional reviews, to Board meetings.
