Health & safety
The company is justifiably proud of its achievements in Health and Safety through the development of our Integrated SHEQT management system. The system is designed to enable line management to fulfil their roles in SHEQT (Safety, Health, Environmental, Quality and Training) by making each and every person in our team accountable for their own and others Health and Safety. This creates an improved culture throughout the business from the behavioural changes in the attitude of our team towards SHEQT.
We hold safety as a value, not a priority, because priorities change, values do not! The ultimate responsibility for SHEQT lies with the Managing Director who ensures it is given equal priority with other major business issues. The implementation of the policy and the safety management system is a line management responsibility and will involve the participation of all employees within the company.
We continually review our SHEQT strategies and constantly look for new innovative ideas to improve our management system. Objectives and Targets are established annually and reviewed monthly to establish their status. Information is fed back into the company so all employees are aware, thus creating an environment built upon trust and respect, and whereby everyone is an equal partner in the company.
