Corporate Responsibility

Sustainable and safe workforce.

The health, safety and wellbeing of our people is our number one priority. We couldn't do the work we do without our people so it's important we maintain a talented workforce who feel motivated to give their best and who can return home safe and well each day. That's why we're committed to our Zero incidents, Zero harm and Zero Compromise vision.

Safe in every sense.

It’s essential that we take the same zero compromise approach with health and wellbeing and safety. We’re continuing to create a culture where wellbeing as well as safety is accepted as part of what we do every day, and we have a dedicated health and wellbeing strategy which categorises our approach.

As part of our strategy we offer a range of programmes to help employees keep fit, eat well, stay healthy and manage mental health. Click on the links below to find out more:

People make the difference.

As well as a safe workforce we need a sustainable one. For us, this means recruiting and retaining the best people, and providing them with support and opportunities to maximise their potential. We want our talented people to be proud, engaged and passionate about our business – after all, they’re at the heart of serving our customers well.

In 2016/17 we continued to expand our talent pipeline programmes. Working within the London Health and Safety Forum we have developed the UK’s first Safety, Health and Environment (SHE) apprenticeship scheme.

“There was a groundswell of recognition that, with the growth of our profession throughout the UK, we have an opportunity to support the world of work through the development and implementation of a formal health and safety apprenticeship programme. I am delighted with the work undertaken this past year, led by a group of dedicated health and safety professionals, and am looking forward to the first apprentice commencing the new scheme.”
