The potential hazards faced by our industry require the highest standards of health and safety. We are committed to protecting our staff and everyone affected by our operations.
As a responsible employer it is clear to us that the management of health and safety is critical to our success, particularly as we seek to adopt even better ways of delivering services to our customers.

Protecting the health, safety and welfare of our staff, contractors and customers remains an established and shared responsibility that is essential to our reputation as a leading and trusted employer.

During 2015-16 we introduced a revised health, safety and welfare strategy to ensure we deliver continuous improvement and best practice over the next five years.
In the past year we have received health and safety awards from the British Safety Council (international safety award) and the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (gold safety award).
