Our Policies

All Health and Safety Policies are communicated to all staff members during the initial safety inductions held for all employees by the HSEQ Manager.

All site operations and offices have the current polices and communications boards in all staff meeting rooms and welfare cribs, the communications boards informs all personnel of any issues or other events that may affect their working areas.

As per our BS OHSAS 18001 Management System 1.1.7 Consultation, Communication and Reporting Employees shall be consulted on HSE issues through company and site inductions as well as weekly tool box talks (SKY-HSE-F11) and safety meetings. This consultation shall be documented and recorded by the appropriate staff and shall be made available to interested parties. The company shall ensure that the appropriate level of skill, competency or training is available to staff involved with HSE management issues.

All communication meetings and reports are submitted to our HSEQ Manager and also the relevant Project Management Group members for comment. The communication reports are then placed within the Safety Management system and filled.

Externally we are audited once every month by Safety Scotland who reports back directly to the Managing Director. This is to ensure that all systems including all site communications are correct and in place as per our Safety Management Systems and Construction Safety Phase Plans.

When this has been completed and evaluated we will set the working target for next year and review quality objectives at each management review meeting.
  2. Full commitment of all personnel to active involvement in making improvements.
  3. Full commitment to promoting wherever possible the re-cycling of old materials.
  4. Full commitment to promoting Equal Opportunities to all employees and providing on-going training and development of staff.
  5. Full understanding by all employees, of long term importance of achieving customer satisfaction and their role in ensuring that their failure to meet standards will lead to the company failing to meet customer standards.
  6. An appreciation that a consistent quality service can only be achieved by ensuring control at each stage of service delivery, with the ultimate aim of achieving “Zero Defects.”

A companywide Quality System is in operation which is designed to comply with the requirements of BS/EN/ISO 9001:2008.
