Russell Cawberry Limited is committed to achieving the highest standards of health, safety and environment protection.
Our initiative “Think Safe, Work Safe, Stay Safe” is a prominent message across all Russell Cawberry sites, producing effective results and an exemplary health and safety record. We provide procedures and set our expectations for safety management on site along with adopting our Health and Safety ethos:
Think SAFE – This is where our safety management system provides us all with a good solid structure to achieve a high level of safety before, during and after the works have completed. This is done in four important sections – Safety Policies and Objectives, Safety Risk Management, Safety Assurance and Safety Promotion – these lay the foundations for us to plan and implement an effective safety program that’s comprehensive and lifesaving.
Work SAFE – Having implemented our SMS and using this as a focal point, we ensure our safety procedures are reviewed for the process at hand and adopted to eliminate any potential risks that may be present before continuing. We encourage our workforce to work together as a team, by employing the appropriate skill labour required, ensuring operatives have the proper equipment, visual safety aids and messages. This is not exhaustive, as our goal is to achieve zero injuries which we are committed to.
Stay SAFE – In fact this section is one of the most satisfying, as we aim to have all those involved in the project site to return home to their families at the end of each working day. This helps solidify our bond with our workforce, to achieve our aim, to see them return day after day to see the project completed on time and on budget is contenting.
We consistently achieve exceptional safety standards. We provide a bespoke training and continuous professional development programme for each member of staff.
Our Health & Safety Manager visits all sites on a regular basis and provides proactive and continual support to site management teams, as well as monitoring the performance of our sub-contract partners.
Health & Safety results and statistics are reported to the Board of Directors monthly who review and set targets and objectives for the future whilst maintaining a culture from the ‘top down’ of high standards and continued support.
You can view a copy of our company Health & Safety Policy which is reviewed annually and signed by our Managing Director. This also sets out our strategy for implementation of the policy.
We are accredited to CHAS Premium Plus, Alcumus Safe Contractor and Constructionline Gold. We have also been audited by BAB over five days and have received ISO45001:2018 accreditation.
