Health and Safety Policy

Almerico is a contractor that takes Health and Safety very seriously and believes there are huge benefits from positively implemented policy, not only to safety, but also efficiency and customer care. The company is proud of its current and previous excellent safety record and constantly monitors work practices and procedures to ensure continual improvement is achieved.

The company employs a highly qualified Health and Safety Manager who has many years experience working within the construction industry. Constant monitoring and supervision with both the trades personnel and office staff has assisted in the company achieving both Chas and Safecontractor accreditation.

Almerico ensures that the company is fully CDM compliant and always up to date with the latest legislation.

Training plays a big part in reducing accidents and the company ensures that all staff are given the necessary training they require to enable them to complete their duties safely. We initiate comprehensive toolbox talks with staff on a regular basis. These sessions allow management and staff to discuss safety matters in greater depth. Issues are debated and staff are encouraged to contribute and give their valued opinions about current work practices and procedures. We believe our open door policy, which not only allows but encourages staff to voice their opinions, is significant in reducing accidents in the workplace and maintaining safe systems of work.

Ongoing training sessions are delivered every four weeks by our Health and Safety Manager. Topics for discussion are chosen in line with trade and occupational needs and recent training sessions have included:

  • Asbestos Awareness
  • Manual Handling
  • COSHH Regulations
  • Completing a Risk Assessment
  • Working at Height
  • The use of Electricity at Work
  • Driving Company Vehicles Safely

It is the intention of the directors to manage Health and Safety within the workplace in a professional way and ensure that sufficient resources are made available to address safety issues. All Almerico staff are CSCS trained.
