We believe that formal accreditation of policies, procedures and monitoring techniques, plus regular auditing, is key to maintaining the highest standards in safety. We are registered with CHAS and ConstructionLine and are proud to have received OHSAS 18001 and accreditation.
We operate a ‘safety first’ culture, providing regular training to all our staff and supply chain partners. Sites are audited by our Group Safety management team, who provide expert advice to ensure a safe working environment for our staff, partners and members of the public. Directors also undertake regular impromptu safety tours to ensure the highest standards are maintained.
Governance of Health and Safety is the responsibility of our Managing Director, Simon Carr, who endorses our annual Management Policy Statement. This policy clearly defines the roles and responsibilities of everyone involved in the business and sets out the high standards we expect from all of our operations.
“Henry Boot Construction Limited has shown a commitment to protecting the health and well-being of its employees and others. Organisations which do this deserve to have such dedication recognised and that is where the RoSPA Awards come in.”
David Rawlins, RoSPA
“It was a pleasure to do work with a contractor who is dedicated to the project and can perform under pressure whilst complying with and monitoring both Health and Safety and SHUs standards.”
