We have set targets for reductions in accidents and lost-time injury rates as well as work-related illnesses. We aim to continually increase the number of site inspections by senior management and to introduce industry-leading health surveillance for our employees, including those whose health may be affected by their work.
Interserve has a formal and disciplined approach to health and safety management, supported by the Health and Safety policy statement.
Formal safety management systems continue to be implemented across our operations. These systems are specific to each business and operation and provide appropriate guidance to deal with the range of risks encountered by our employees.
Proactive management of health and safety is delivered with programmes of health and safety competence and awareness training delivered by our in-house teams and external providers as appropriate.
Managers have the responsibility for delivering health and safety on site. They are trained appropriately and are supported by a team of full-time health and safety professionals including specialists in occupational health and well-being.
Every employee has a responsibility for their own safety and that of their colleagues. Employees receive relevant health and safety training and are encouraged to take proactive action and address unsafe conditions or work practices.
