Safety, Health, Environmental and Quality (SHEQ)
Our Safety 360° initiative is a pillar of the Structure Tone organisation’s identity. we believe that our employees and workforce should always return home safely and our clients should always know we will ensure the safety of their staff and visitors.
We are extremely proud that Structure Tone is one of the first businesses to be accredited with the new ISO 45001:2018 Occupational Health & Safety Management System.
Health & Safety Excellence
Structure Tone’s health and safety credentials are beyond compare, having achieved an exceptional Achilles assessment score of 99%!
We have completed millions of man-hours without incident and reduced our minor incidents significantly year on year. We are committed to eliminating operational risks and hazards and creating the best possible working conditions for our employees.
Structure Tone drives home the importance of safety on its sites, providing employees and subcontractors with safety training, compliance and safety programs. One of our most important programs is the safety behaviour workshop, which we run for contractors on our projects.
As a standard, all site managers are trained to the IOSH Managing Safely standards (4-to-5-day safety courses for managers). Each course is accredited by IOSH and is recognised worldwide. We are proud to say we have a 100% pass rate.
We have built an exceptional culture of safety, having been received Ten Gold RoSPA awards, RoSPA Gold medal for consecutive wins and achieving the RoSPA President’s medal.
To ensure effective organisation and arrangements for the implementation we have appointed a SHEQ Director, Roy Somerfield, to manage the Safety, Health, Environmental and Quality (SHEQ) Systems for The Structure Tone International Business Unit. Roy provides expertise and support to Structure Tone International Managing Director, who is ultimately accountable for health and safety for the UK operations.
In 2008, we were accredited to ISO Standards for Environmental and Quality Management Systems for UK and Ireland operations. Since that time, we have never been issued any non-conformities for Structure Tone International operations in the UK or Ireland business units.
