HEALTH & SAFETY
At WL Straughan & Son Ltd we are committed to the safety of both our personnel and for those around us. RAMS (Risk Assessment and Method Statements) are produced for every job, which are carried out by our qualified operators.
Health and Safety is at the heart of everything we do, our policies and procedures cover all aspects of our work and are supported through our regular management meetings and training sessions.
Proof of our commitment to safety can be seen by our accreditations, which includes:
We have achieved tender pre-qualification via Constructionline due to our safety, quality and environmental systems. Currently we are gold level members.
WL Straughan & Son Ltd are also members of CHAS ‘The Constructors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme’, again recognising our health and safety approach.
Hire is a large part of our business and being a member of the Construction Plant-Hire Association (CPA) ensures that we keep up to date with the related health and safety issues associated with hiring equipment and skilled operators.
Extending our CHAS membership we are also recognised by the SSIP (Safety Schemes In Procurement). This membership streamlines our tendering activities due to the effectiveness of our Health & Safety approach.
As a commitment to our employees' health and safety we have also signed up to the ‘No Time to Lose’ campaign, to help reduce occupational cancer.
