Health & Safety And Quality Assurance

HEALTH & SAFETY

At GIP our whole team recognises the importance of effective Health & Safety policies and, in line with this, our Health & Safety officer is tasked with monitoring and updating those policies and ensuring that all staff are appropriately trained as necessary. Full training records are held for each staff member and are reviewed and updated throughout the year. Our policies are audited annually by our external Health & Safety advisor, who is also tasked with on-going monthly reviews of processes and procedures.

All staff hold a relevant CSCS (Construction Skills Certification Scheme) card.
