Health, Safety & Wellbeing

Health, Safety and Wellbeing is never compromised and our business is committed to upholding and maintaining the highest possible level of health, safety and wellbeing standards at all times. We work collaboratively with our clients, the industry and trade associations to continuously improve our processes and performance, and a “No Harm” culture is firmly within our DNA.

In order to support our No Harm approach an Integrated Management System (IMS) is in place. Our IMS as a minimum complies with and is externally registered to the internationally recognised standards ISO 45001 (Health & Safety), ISO 9001 (Quality) and ISO 14001 (Environment). The IMS also facilitates our need to embrace our continuous improvement philosophy at all levels and at all stages of our operations.

Instalcom is continuously moving forward from traditional “compliance” and consistently seeks new, and innovative ways of improving standards of safety, occupational health and the wellbeing of our employees. Our SHEQ Management Team uses various techniques such as Behavioural Safety that encourages and empowers people to make better health and safety choices and take ownership of their behaviours, as well as process safety analysis and hazard perception all designed to maintain our position as a leading company in health and safety performance.

To support the diverse range of services we provide across multiple sectors, the Instalcom SHEQ Team provides a 24 hours, 7 days a week service. Our approach is very much proactive rather than reactive, working with the site teams to identify problems before they arise. Utilising our own accredited trainers and facilities we provide much of the required training for our people such as EUSR SHEA Power, Water and Telecoms, National Water Hygiene, First Aid, HSG47, Plant and Vehicle Marshal, Manual Handling and Abrasive Wheels

 

Cognisant of the industries increasing awareness on mental health issues we have partnered with Mates in Mind, a mental health charity founded to improve mental health in the workplace.

We actively embrace this campaign and carry out regular mental health awareness sessions with our teams. We have also trained our own mental health first aiders who have become that first and pivotal point of contact for those seeking support.
