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.

“Think Safe, Be Safe” is a motto I live by, it is my intention to pass this on to all my employees. It is very important to me that you go home safe every day, therefore you have my authority to stop any unsafe works and assist in putting them right, before returning to work safely.”

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.
