We monitor performance and compliance with our Health & Safety systems on our sites through an internal inspection regime carried out by our in-house HSEQ Manager.

As a family-owned and run company, we believe that our employees are our greatest assets and therefore cannot over emphasise our continuous commitment to ensure their health, safety and wellbeing at work.

The company has made a commitment to continuously update the skills of our workforce through training, supervision and the nurturing of young talent. One of the ways in which we commit to this, is through offering apprenticeships. One avenue by which we do this is through an agreement with Wates, whereby each time we obtain a project through them we take on an Apprenticeship and support their college education.

We remain steadfast in our drive towards the achievement of zero accidents and incidents, employee ownership and participation in safety schemes, and the realisation of personal responsibility with regard to safety at work. A reflection of our commitment to Health & Safety is that we have been subject to no HSE enforcement actions, prosecutions or fines. We are also very proud of our CQMS Safety Scheme accreditation, to view our certificate please click here.
