Health & Safety

McPhillips (Wellington) Limited is compliant with all relevant health and safety legislation and recognises that exemplary performance is achieved through the integration of health and safety in its organisational culture.

The Company has developed a zero accident strategy which is fully supported by the Board and ensures that effective health and safety systems are an intrinsic part of Company operations.  Implementation is achieved through the use of the McPhillips Health and Safety Policy and OHSAS18001:2007 certified Safety Management System which forms a key component of the Integrated Safety, Health, Environmental and Quality Management System. This strategy has enabled McPhillips to achieve average accident incident rates of less than half the UK national average for construction contractors between 2009-2012.
 
McPhillips’ Safety, Training and Quality Manager is responsible for the operation and development of the strategy and its constant review using processes and historical analysis to consult with our operational personnel and industry best practice sources aimed at year on year improvement.
 
The direct employment of McPhillips’ workforce makes this strategy more effective and a CITB approved Training Plan delivers in excess of 1000 training days annually.  All McPhillips Site Managers and Foremen hold Site Managers/Supervisors Safety Training Scheme certificates, 100% of our Machine Operators hold CPCS cards and 100% of the workforce is  CSCS certified, predominantly via the NVQ route.
 
ISO9001:2008 certified supply chain approval and assessment processes ensure that effective health and safety is maintained across all activities.
