Health, Safety, Environmental and Quality

Safety

Health and Safety

Westshield’s people are our greatest asset and we are committed to ensuring their safety and wellbeing. We believe everyone involved with our projects has the right to return home safely at the end of the day.

Our people are empowered to make the right decisions. Our commitment is led from the top down, with our Business Division leaders setting the very highest of standards of health and safety performance across the business.

This approach is supported by our ISO 18001 accreditation designed specifically to help our staff to carry out their work safely. We have a comprehensive staff training matrix, which ensures that all our staff are appropriately trained and have the right skills, knowledge and competencies to do their jobs safely.

Behavioural safety is a key part of our approach, and we regularly hold management safety tours, ‘stop and consider days’, and regular audits to ensure that this approach is an intrinsic part of our business.

We are ISO 14001 accredited and have highly trained staff to ensure the strictest levels of environmental compliance.
