Safety, Health & Environment
Our policy is to prevent human injury or loss of life by maintaining a high standard of safety performance, fostering concern and respect for protecting the environment on land and sea and avoiding property damage in all undertakings, ensuring employees conduct their operations in the same spirit.
Ensuring the health and safety of personnel and protection of the environment is a fundamental requirement within the group, an output of which is sustainable growth and profit of the business.
Health, Safety and Environmental Management Procedures have been prepared to ensure that employees adopt safe working practices and comply with the various statutory standards.
Briggs also recognise the duty to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, that persons not in their employment who may be affected by what they do, are not exposed to risks to their health and safety.
This is especially relevant with respect to principal contractors and sub-contractors and when carrying out operations where the general public may be close by or have legitimate access to areas near work operations. To this end, work areas and operations are assessed and relevant hazards made known to any persons that could be affected by the operations
