Our health and safety commitment

All Group companies hold ISO 9001, 14001 and OHSAS 18001 Occupational Health and Safety management accreditations, and are part of the Safe Contractor schemes. Employees have access to specialist occupational health advisors, who can provide proactive health surveillance and advice in order to keep our employees fit and healthy.

A Group level Health and Safety Strategy Forum, led by the Group Chief Executive and supported by the Head of Health and Safety, continues to oversee activities in this important area of the business.
A large percentage of the workforce operate remotely and in challenging environments, as a result, the business aims to instil a health and safety centred culture.
The group looks to build on this commitment and thereby acknowledges room for improvement.

Riddor

In the last year the All Accident Rate reduced by 52% with no RIDDOR reportable events during 2017. The hard work and commitment across all of our businesses by all our employees has enabled the group to attain achieve all safety targets. Employee assistance programmes are also made available to employees across the Group, where employees can get free advice and counselling on any issues, whether work related or personal.
