Health and Safety

We believe in safety of the people, whether it be our own staff, other contractors, clients or pedestrians - Everyone should go home safe!

Health & safety isn’t just important, it’s a core value, we base our entire work ethos around it. All our projects are estimated, planned and executed with this at the forefront. We feel so strongly about this, that on occasions we have had to withdraw from projects when the client doesn’t hold the same beliefs in H&S as we do - We will never risk people’s safety for profit!

Promoting a positive health and safety culture within our business is as important as securing work, we ensure that we abide by working practices and rules for effectively eliminating and controlling hazards, maintain a positive attitude towards risk management, compliance with control processes and project the capacity to learn from accidents, near misses and safety performance indicators to bring about continual improvement.
