JC&C has an excellent safety record but understands that it is future performance which counts and this is why health and safety is given such a high priority.
The best possible training is provided to the workforce, with more time and resources invested in health and safety year on year. Every person on-site undergoes at least three full days of training per year.
There are weekly ‘toolbox talks’ to highlight potential hazards, monthly site meetings and safety reporting to reinforce these messages. An independent health and safety consultant makes regular visits to sites to ensure best practice is being consistently maintained.
All site supervisors have undertaken the industry recognised five day Site Managers’ Safety Training Scheme course and the site based management teams have both NEBOSH and IOSH qualifications. The aim is to train all site management to NEBOSH level.
All employees working on site hold relevant Construction Skills (CSCS) cards and all plant operatives hold Construction Plant Competence (CPCS) accreditations in a wide range of plant categories.
The company achieved ISO accreditation in January 2013 and continues to retain the standards for:
Joyce Construction & Civils Ltd monitor accident statistics and they are available upon request.
The best possible working conditions are created across the organisation
Hazards are identified and controls put in place to manage them
Workplace accidents and illness are reduced, cutting related costs and downtime
Staff are engaged and motivated to develop safer working conditions
Compliance is demonstrated to clients and suppliers
An integrated management system, based on these standards, underpins the processes and these principles are encouraged within suppliers to ensure that JC&C quality standards are maintained.
The company is also a member of the Civil Engineering Training Group, the Contractors Health and Safety Accreditation Scheme (CHAS) and the Civil Engineers Contractors Association (CECA).
