Significant Group resources are made available annually to fund improvements in training and competency so as to ensure that we remain not only at the forefront of our industry, but also that our staff and employees experience the safest working conditions we can provide.
We continue to benefit from our OHSAS 18001, CHAS Premier Plus and Safecontractor accreditations. We maintain membership of health and safety organisations including RoSPA and the British Safety Council at national level, and the North Lincs Health & Safety Group and Concom at regional level.
Since the beginning of 2014 our Health & Safety team has been led by Mr Sam Panter (Dip Nebosh, Grad IOSH), our Health & Safety Director. Sam's team includes a further 3 Nebosh accredited H&S Officers and a dedicated Traning Manager.
Obtaining external recognition for our efforts to maintain and improve our health and safety performance is rewarding and confirms our position as a responsible employer. In this regard, our receipt of the following Occupational Health and Safety Awards is both welcome and proves our commitment:
- 2013 RoSPA Silver
- 2014 RoSPA Gold
- 2015 RoSPA Gold
- 2016 RoSPA Gold
- 2017 RoSPA Gold
- 2018 RoSPA Gold and a Gold Medal for 5 consecutive Gold Awards
Further proof of our aim for continuous improvement in Health & Safety was confirmed by our 2017 and 2018 Achilles UVDB Verify health and safety assessment scores of 100% for both Management System Evaluation and the Onsite Assessment. Such achievements encourage our team to sustain their efforts in the drive for zero RIDDOR reportable accidents.
