Health and Safety

Health and Safety is of paramount importance to the Tighe Group of Companies and forms the basis of the Group’s commitment to a safe working environment, together with our continuous goal of achieving zero accidents and incidents.

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 enjoy the safest working conditions we can provide.

We continue to benefit from our OHSAS 18001 accreditation and our other accreditations with CHAS and Safecontractor remain of high importance.  We maintain membership of health and safety organisations including RoSPA and the British Safety County at national level and the North Lincs Health & Safety Group and Concom at regional level.

At the beginning of 2014 our commitment to Health & Safety was underlined with the appointment of Mr Sam Panter, Dip Nebosh, Grad IOSH to the role of H&S Director, and the employment of a further member of staff to our in-house H&S Department.

During 2013 we achieved a RoSPA Occupational Health & Safety Silver Award and have followed this achievement in both 2014 and 2015 with Gold Awards.  Our congratulations go to Sam and his team for their sterling efforts.

Further proof of our aim for continuous improvement in Health & Safety have been confirmed by our 2015 UVDB Verify health and safety assessment scores of 95% for Management System Evaluation and 100% for the Onsite Assessment.  Such achievements encourage our team to sustain their efforts in the drive for zero RIDDOR reportable accidents.
