Health & Safety
At Bouygues UK, we believe passionately that it is the right of everyone that comes into our workplaces to feel safe, be able to work without fear of injury and go home safely every day. Safety is a culture that must be developed and shared. A culture of safety is more than a commitment, it is a state of mind that must be continuously present among all of the people who work every day on our production sites and in our offices.
We have defined an ambitious but achievable vision of being a lost time accident (LTA) free business by 2018. To fulfil this objective, we have created and committed to a Health and Safety improvement programme which involves careful and detailed planning of key measurable actions across all levels of the business.
Our improvement programme is centred on Leadership and Behaviours in everything we do. We support our people and supply chain to understand and achieve this philosophy, and the advancements are carefully monitored and reported upon.
This is complemented by the most rigorous application of best practice health and safety processes and procedures, adhering to, and being certified to the BS OHSAS 18001 Occupational Health and Safety standard as a minimum.
Since defining our Vision and committing to the Strategy to achieve the Vision we have outperformed our statistical targets year on year. These targets do not measure the true indicators of success in health & safety, in addition and at all levels we measure and report:
• System Compliance
Industry Panel and Group Representations
• BUILD UK
• Construction Health & Safety Group (CHSG)
• Institute for Occupational Safety & Health (IOSH)
• British Standards Institute (BSI)
• Working Well Together – HSE
• Construction News Industry Award Panel
