HEALTH AND SAFETY

Health and safety are paramount and have been integrated into all our systems. Policies and procedures have been implemented across a diverse range of working conditions to ensure a safe working environment for management and staff.

These procedures include initial induction and ongoing training of all personnel in their respective tasks/duties and all associated health/safety documentation and reporting (training matrixes for all personnel are available on request, as are our Health, Safety and Environmental Policies).

With long-term contracts with clients such as Exxon Mobil and Chevron, for whom we work on live fuel station sites, health and safety systems are routinely audited and refined to ensure the highest possible level of safety is maintained.

One fully comprehensive document is routinely implemented into projects to form the Health and Safety Plan. For major projects, a  detailed pre-start Site Inspection and Site Specific Hazard Assessment is carried out, the findings of which are reviewed and a Site Specific Health and Safety Plan compiled.
