Our Commitment To Health & Safety is set out in our Health & Safety Policy. Our procedures are implemented in the form of a Safety Management System which comprises Site Audits and specialist Safety Training.

In line with best practice the company has purchased defibrillators for site use.

Site Audits

All sites are regularly audited by the Health & Safety Manager to ensure compliance with the systems and procedures and corrective action is taken where necessary. The audit results are reviewed regularly at Senior Management level with a view to achieving continuous improvement. The company is proud of its track record in the area of health and safety and is confident that the procedures in place will ensure that this situation is maintained.
