Health & Safety

J Coffey’s Health & Safety Strategy has, at its heart, the concepts of Sensible Health & Safety and shows the company’s commitment to continual improvement. Being “risk aware, not risk averse,” is built into the company’s whole approach to managing risk in all aspects of its business. Sensible Health & Safety awareness is key to ensuring that Managers can deliver on their service priorities whilst ensuring the risks are managed in a sensible, proportionate and legal way.

The strategy supports the company’s priorities, and in particular supports the priority of maximising wellbeing by addressing the potential health and safety risks from the company’s service delivery.

This is endorsed by our Managing Director and the Health & Safety Department. By supporting the implementation of the Health & Safety Policy, it provides the direction for improvement of health and safety performance across all of the Group’s business activities. This includes working to the stringent health and safety standards set by Network Rail.

The safe working practices we adhere to across the business, along with the introduction of our Behavioural Safety Programme has resulted in J Coffey being awarded RoSPA Gold Awards for Occupational Health & Safety from 2011 to 2018, something all at J Coffey are highly proud of.
