Health & safety

Zero Harm is our ambition and our overriding priority. Our strategic pillars are the foundations of our organisation – they are the core of our business strategy.

We recognise that our employees, customers and supply chain are entitled to a healthy and safe working environment, and we believe that effective health, safety and environmental management significantly contribute to the success of our business, and the health and wellbeing of all our employees. 

Our vision

To be best in class in Health, Safety and Environmental (HSE) performance across the Renewables industry where ZERO HARM is a core value of the business, all harm is seen as preventable and our employees and contract partners take on a collective and personal responsibility to continually improve our HSE performance.

To achieve this vision we are continuously investing in our health, safety and environmental performance and have a zero tolerance stance, as we believe no task is so important or urgent that it cannot be done safely.

The safety and wellbeing of our people is our top priority. One of our objectives is to ensure we run a business where the wellbeing of our colleagues is seen as a priority to enable us to deliver on the four pillars of our roadmap. We run annual wellbeing programmes that aim for all our people to:

  • be mentally fit and resilient, especially during times of change
  • be physically fit, healthy and safe in their working environment
  • feel connected, cared for and supported by others at work.
     

We are committed to achieving the highest possible standards of environmental management within the industry, and are always looking for improved working practices and innovative equipment that we can use to reduce the impact of our activities on the environment.

Assessing our culture and measuring our performance

Our strong safety performance relies on having zero harm embedded in our culture. This means that our people take personal responsibility and accountability for their safety and that of others. It is something we need to develop continually.

We have a set of performance indicators that we use to monitor our performance and ensure we’re on the right track.
