Health & Safety
The health and safekeeping of his own workforce was of paramount importance to John when founding the group and it remains so to this day throughout the
This commitment to safety is evidenced by our Safety Policy that clearly states "J. McCann Co (Nottm) Ltd considers that nothing is so important that it cannot be done safely”. We ensure the policy is not only prepared and revised in line with current best practice and regulation, but is effectively communicated to visitors, our workforce and supply chain.
To achieve the high standards of health and safety required by our principal and the Industry at large, we believe a number of elements of management and support need to be in place. Firstly sufficient and suitable resources need to be allocated to enable the policies to be implemented, to ensure such a level of resource is in place we not only employ a safety specialist to advise and support our management team but carry out and facilitate extensive in house and external training of both our own workforce but also where appropriate that of our supply chain. Secondly we ensure that our management systems provide for effective monitoring and reporting of Health, Safety and Environmental performance and that this reporting through using ‘lessons learnt’, leads to the continuous improvement of our systems and policies.
We believe the key to successful project delivery is the attainment of a safe and controlled working environment. To ensure this we pride ourselves on having Site Managers who are both professional and confident in implementing CDM regulations and the legal requirements of Health and Safety, who are in turn supported by an experienced Health and Safety Manager and by the deployment of a well informed, qualified workforce who are committed to safety and the environment.
