Health & Safety

SWC regards health and safety as essential part of a successful business. It is of the utmost importance to us that we care for the safety, health and wellbeing of our employees and everyone else who interfaces with our business activities.

SWC’s approach to managing health and safety is structured and risk based. We aim to create a safe working environment by assessing risks, adopting good practice and ensuring that safe systems of work are in place. All of our sites are monitored by external safety consultants (The Building Safety Group). Bi-weekly audits of the sites ensure site managers are kept abreast of any issues. BSG also highlight potential health & safety issues to ensure risks are carefully managed.
