By making health and safety a priority we continue to play our part in improving workplaces for our employees, clients, partners and the public.
We concentrate on basic issues which, together with a strong focus on health and safety leadership, result in regular reductions in both our Accident Frequency Rates (AFR) and Accident Incident Rates (AIR).
We provide information and training to enable our employees to develop and maintain essential Health and Safety skills and also to encourage the growth of a positive Health and Safety culture.
We are committed to ensuring all our site managers and supervisors hold either the Construction Skills Site Managers or Site Supervisors Safety Training Scheme (SMSTS or SSSTS) certificate or a recognised equivalent qualification, and we are working towards this target.
