Statement of safety policy
The Health Safety & Welfare of our staff and those who may be affected by what we do is our highest priority. Legislation covers all business activities but operation in the construction industry is particularly well regulated.
Our policy, procedures, arrangements and monitoring program were developed specifically for our business by expert consultants (Delain Consultants). This documented system is contained within three volumes and is supplemented by various documents and databases that are an integral part of our management information system named IMIS. This forms the basis of how we achieve compliance. All firms employing more than 5 staff are required to have a policy statement and a Competent Person (CP). Our CP is John Bradstreet DipSM, FIIRSM and he is registered with OSHCR.
We held third party accreditation with Safe Contractor, CHAS and Constructionline for many years. To streamline our health and safety accreditation we now hold this with Constructionline only. We were members of the British Safety Council and achieved recognition in the form of their annual safety award for some 13 years. We are competent to deliver project works under CDM (Construction Design Management) Regulations. All our field staff receive specific health & safety training during induction and as part of an on-going programme, they are also required to pass the H&S assessment examination under the Construction Skills Certification Scheme every three years.
