Health and Safety
Achieving health and safety excellence is at the core of Wood Group Industrial Services business strategy.
We recognise that the industries in which we operates require constant attention to the assured deliverance of a safe working environment. In response, we have adopted a pro-active management culture to ensure that the highest possible standards of health and safety are achieved in all of our endeavours.
We believe that effective safety, health and environmental management significantly contributes to our business performance, the success and business performance of our customers and supply chain partners and the health, wealth and well-being of all our employees.
We continue to invest in developing improvements in our safety performance through the provision of targets and training, supported by management audits to ensure that lessons learnt are being successfully applied across all of the company’s activities.
The company Health and Safety Management System is externally accredited to OHSAS 18001.
The company is currently registered with IOSH, IPAF, RoSPA, BSC and several SSIP schemes.
Improved safety standards keep people safe, assist in securing future contracts, increase employee morale and productivity and ensure continued compliance with current legislation. The Zero Harm campaign has been introduced as part of a zero tolerance stance on health, safety and environmental incidents and accidents.
We have a duty to protect people and take comfort from the fact we have all of the right tools, process and standards to live and breathe safe working practice. The Wood’s Safety Cocoon is the foundation of our approach to protecting people.
The Safety Cocoon features four layers that focus on hazard awareness, safety training and behavioural standards and lifesaving rules. Each element of the safety Cocoon acts as a protective layer around people.
The safety Cocoon includes four elements:
