At ARJ, Health and Safety is paramount. It is our duty to protect everyone who is involved in or affected by our operations and we take this responsibility very seriously. Our commitment is to deliver incident free projects and we have the following strategies in place to help us achieve this:
- Effective reviews, audits and reporting – Our Health and Safety (H&S) department is staffed by qualified health and safety professionals. We hold annual reviews of our H&S policies and procedures, and ensure that our offices and sites report all accidents and maintain compliance with statutory provisions.
- Regular inspections and audits are conducted fortnightly by our in-house H&S auditors and monthly by the director responsible for H&S. All ARJ H&S documentation is controlled by the administrative team at our Stevenage office.
- Comprehensive staff management and training – We recruit skilled professionals whom we induct thoroughly into site and office health and safety procedures encouraging all staff to contribute to a working environment free of accidents and ill health. We run regular training audits and refresher courses for staff and promote awareness of health and safety good practice through the distribution of advice bulletins and safety alerts.
- Stringent supplier and site management – We conduct regular contractor and sub-contractor assessment and review, and only use approved suppliers to provide and maintain safe plant and work equipment. Our robust programme of risk assessments, ensures that we implement safe systems of work on site.
