Health & Safety

Grubb & Banks Building Services Limited accepts its legal responsibilities under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and associated legislation and Codes of Practice, and gives its full commitment to doing everything reasonably practicable to protect the safety, health and welfare of all employees and any other persons whose health and safety may be affected.

It is the intention that all Grubb & Banks affairs and business will be conducted and carried out in a manner which will not cause risk to the health and safety of persons employed or members of the public.

Grubb & Banks recognise that people are a vital resource, and priority will be given to the effective prevention of risks and to contingency arrangements. In doing so, the support of all persons employed is needed in avoiding accidents and ill health and associated cost and disruption.

Commitment and Continual Improvement

Our approach to health and safety has to start at the top. Visible and active support, strong leadership and commitment of our directors are fundamental to the success of health and safety management. We recognise that good health and safety is good business.

We believe that an excellent company is by definition a safe company. Since we are committed to excellence, it follows that minimising risk to people, plant and products is inseparable from all other company objectives.

We are committed to continual improvement to health and safety and therefore use active monitoring techniques to measure ”how well we are doing” through site safety inspections and external audit.

Competence

Competence in managing health and safety is an essential part of professional management.

Our site supervisors are qualified in the Supervisory Module of Construction Skills Certification Scheme and our health and safety management system has been verified and certified by the Construction Health and Assessment Scheme (CHAS).

We engage the services of a Chartered Health and Safety Practitioner (CMIOSH) to support us in the management of health and safety.
