Health and Safety (H&S) is our top priority on every project. We operate an ISO 45001 accredited Health and Safety (H&S) Management System and meet all the requirements of HSG 65. Our proactive behavioural Health and Safety culture considers safety at all stages of the project lifecycle from pre-tender to handover. Key to our approach are encouraging good behaviours and personal responsibility from all team members and our accredited systems and processes. Our goal is to ensure all H&S risks are identified, designed out where possible, and effectively managed and mitigated through proper planning. We are CHAS and Constructionline Gold accredited.
Our commitment to H&S for both our own team and all those who meet our work, including residents, comes from the top: our Managing Director, Costin Serban.
Costin is passionate about health and safety and has personally driven an embedded safety culture which combines both a ‘top down’ and ‘bottom up’ approach.
Costin is determined that SER Contractor maintains our exemplary H&S record and continues to outperform our competitors in providing sites which are healthy and safe for all. He specifically recruited our Health and Safety Consultant, Chris Breavington, an industry professional qualified and motivated to support this ambition.
Chris provides all aspects of H&S Advice including, operative training, site audits, accident/incident investigation, quarterly management reviews and sub-contractor vetting.
He works closely with Costin in support of our ISO 45001 H&S Management System and our policies and processes to ensure compliance with all current legislation and works with the entire team to drive the messages of our H&S culture to every area of the business (including our supply chain) ensuring that everyone treats their duty of care to themselves, their colleagues, and the public as their number one priority.
A large proportion of our work is completed for public sector housing clients to homes in occupation. This means we have an excellent understanding of the H&S risks involved and experience in successfully mitigating and managing them.
