At Cappagh Group we place the Health, Safety and Wellbeing of our employees firmly at the top of our agenda. The Company Directors are continually driving to improve our safety performance and are always seeking to encourage and support innovation and continual improvements. At Cappagh Group we want all our employees to start safe and stay safe. We are investing heavily in safety support for our front-line operational teams. Our positive behaviours and safety culture are being driven at the very highest level by strong leadership and the principal of leading by example.
We have developed a risk and statutory compliance element to the SHEQ team, which provides assurance to company Directors and our clients that business risks are identified, prioritised and managed and that our statutory obligations are being managed appropriately.
Our operational sites are being visited more frequently than ever before, advisors are embedded into the operational areas and will be encouraged to supply proactive advice as well as reactive investigative service support to operational managers.
We are taking a much greater behavioural approach to our training and investigative processes.
Cappagh has excellent in-house training facilities, including a purpose-built training room at our head offices in Wimbledon. We also operate a mobile training vehicle which is air-conditioned and equipped with audio visual equipment and seating. This is used to deliver health and safety briefings and training on the sites where our employees work. Future training and training facilities are being developed to facilitate more specific safety training which will be delivered in house by in house trainers, providing the business a far more robust delivery tool.
Cappagh Group’s health and safety performance is reviewed monthly at board level. Key performance indicators are measured to ensure we at Cappagh are fully aligned to our business objectives and the suite of health and safety procedures. At an operational level, safety, health and wellbeing is reviewed weekly at performance meetings by the senior managers. Safety conversations are used as a two-way passage for communication, operationally we ensure that safety issues and site welfare requirements are correctly identified and provided for site teams on a project-by-project basis.
Our SHEQ management system is fully integrated and accredited to the ISO 45001 standard. Additionally, we are members of the Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme (CHAS) and UVDB Verify (Achilles).
