SHEQ stands for Safety, Health, Environment and Quality.
Although Health and Safety has only become an industry priority in the recent past, it has always been at the top of our agenda. This is proven by our Health and Safety record which is second to none amongst our peers. In an industry widely considered to be one of the most dangerous, we have never had a fatality – an achievement matched by few.
Health and Safety is most certainly at the forefront whenever we find ourselves in Nuclear, Railway or Industrial Demolition sites.
Managing Director, Keith Roshier, is continually involved with the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and the Demolition Industry Safety Forum addressing live safety issues and helping to re-draft the new Demolition Guidance Notes.
Our in-house SHE Manager is qualified to DipSM and MIIRSM standards and takes an active role on all of our sites.
Our commitment to Health and Safety in everything we do is underlined by our development and patenting of the innovative TracLoc safety device. More information on this can be found on our ‘Innovation and Awards’ page.
With all projects that we undertake, care for the surrounding environment is paramount. A perfect example of this was the installation of noise screens and extensive noise monitoring on our Great Ormond Street Hospital project. We are also environmentally certified to ISO:14001 standards.
When we work on projects, especially those in the Public sector, we always liaise with the Local Authorities to become actively involved in their Local Employment and Training Initiatives.
For example, following a previous blow down at Rowan Court we still to this day employ several operatives that were recruited through Local Training and Employment initiatives.
