The success and reputation of our business relies on high standards of health and safety for our employees, their counterparts in the supply chain, our customers and the wider public.
At Severfield, we are proud of our proactive approach to health and safety. We operate in some difficult working environments and are proud of our good safety record.
We’re constantly working to improve health and safety awareness across the entire company at every level, from the boardroom to the factory floor. Complacency is not an option and we make no apologies for the fact that profit and loss, deadlines and headlines, all come second to making sure that everyone can enjoy a safe and healthy working environment - every day.
Our health & safety department, headed by Health & Safety Director Lee Mills is responsible for developing and maintaining a positive health and safety culture for all aspects of Severfield’s operations. Each site has a health & safety director who reports to the main Board via dedicated monthly meetings. We also have some excellent employee safety champions who work on client projects.
Our commitment in this area has been recognised with an International Safety Award from the British Safety Council in 2013 and a 2013 Gold Award from the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).
We have also achieved certification to OHSAS 18001 and BS EN ISO 14001 for our Safety, Health and Environmental System and developed innovative accident prevention systems for materials handling and operator access during steel erection.
