We believe that all accidents are preventable, so we do everything safely and responsibly or not at all. Safety is the number one value of the company and we expect the same focus from all our business partners and contractors.

Our approach to acting safely and in a responsible manner applies to all staff in all locations, whether on site or in the office.

 

Our Golden Rules

Our Safety Golden Rules apply to every person in the company and provide the basis for the injury-free working that all our employees must strive to achieve.

Accept Challenges

Respond positively if someone points out a safety risk or lapse.

Assess Risks

Work to the agreed risk assessment or method statement, don’t take short cuts and continually consider how changing conditions affect your works.

Hold Handrails

Use the handrails when using steps.

Reverse Park

It is safer to drive out of a parking space than to reverse out.  When you reverse in, you can always check your approach is clear first.

Wear PPE

Use the personnel protection equipment required for your task.

Safety, health and environment charter

Together we will be dedicated, engaged and committed to the safe and sustainable delivery of our projects.

Every supervisor and every manager will fulfil their responsibilities for their safety, the safety of others and that of the environment by:

  • Working to high standards
  • Stopping any job we believe is unsafe

We will continue to take all reasonable steps to ensure that members of the public, contractors and staff are not harmed as a consequence of our activities. We will seek to learn from best practice around the world and challenge each other to improve our performance.
