We are committed to:

A safe working culture is the responsibility of everyone and this can be best achieved and continuously improved through co-operative efforts of team members. A safe culture will be reinforced through:

  • Continually identifying, assessing and controlling possible risks to the health and safety of people that may arise in the workplace.
  • The provision of information concerning such risks and the promotion, instruction, training and supervision of team members to ensure safe work practices.
  • Giving team members and when appropriate clients the opportunity to participate in health and safety decisions that affect them.
  • Accurate reporting and recording in all health and safety matters.
  • Formally recognizing excellence in health & safety management and innovations of team members.

In the interests of maintaining safety, contractors and their employees, visitors and clients are required to observe and comply with all health and safety standards and rules produced. This includes any safety signage or warnings, or instruction given by any Company team member whilst on our premises (or site).
