Safety, health and well-being is the first and most fundamental aspect of the six elements in our Right Works code of practice.
To ensure that everyone returns home to their families and friends unharmed by their day at work, we consider it compulsory to provide a safe setting within which people can work. We do this by:
- Creating the right environment
- Providing the right information
- Issuing the right PPE
- Encouraging the right behaviours
- Ensuring our people have the right skills and knowledge
We benchmark our performance against the Civil Engineering Contractors Association’s (CECA) target Accident Incident Rate, which we consistently out-perform.
In 2017 we received our second President’s Award from RoSPA in recognition of our outstanding occupational health and safety performance over the past 11 years.
Each year we hold a Health & Safety Forum when our senior leaders and representatives from across the business take the day out to focus on health and safety issues.
In 2017 we signed up to CECA’s Stop. Make a Change industry stand-down and during the forum the findings from this were reviewed and ideas discussed for how to incorporate them into our business.
