We are committed to ensuring that hearts and minds are engaged in our efforts to achieve our key objective ‘to have zero accidents, incidents or ill health as a result of our activities’.
Our SHEQ Policy sets out our commitment to achieving our key objective and identifies four areas of focus;
- Ensuring a ‘safety first’, open and just culture
- Encouraging co-operation to innovate and improve
- Building competence to ensure a sustainable workforce
- Maintaining our key focus on risk awareness, reduction and control
Our OHSAS18001 certified Management System is applicable to our scope of works and details the arrangements which we have put in place to help meet our key objectives, provides guidance and support for our teams and the mechanisms to be used for ensuring compliance and continual improvement across our business.
Proactively preventing accidents
We all have a moral obligation to each other to identify the unsafe acts and unsafe conditions which can lead to accidents and to act to prevent them wherever we can. Our GAIL helpline is available to all personnel 24/7 to provide advice, report hazards and incidents and raise any ideas for improvement. Our teams on site use our GARD handheld devices to raise GAIL hazard reports or ideas, with no need to call them through. Each GAIL report is instantly e-mailed to the relevant management team and is tracked to closure by our Compliance Team. With rewards for those who identify and resolve the hazards within our business, there is never a shortage or GAIL reports being sent in and resolved.
We recognise and reward those who come up with new ideas which make our work place safer and are proud of the innovations which have come from within our business and our supply chain. In our Innovation section you will find a number of recent innovations which we have invented, developed or adopted in order to make a safer environment.
