DWG constantly strive to be at the forefront of H&S Compliance, innovation, and good practice; so that we can produce even safer working environments for our employees, our clients’ operatives and the general public. Our H&S consultants and DWG management work tirelessly to involve our employees in a drive to improve behaviour and safe working practices and we wouldn’t have been able to successfully improve SHEQ Standards (Safety, Health, Environment, Quality) without their determination, diligence and professionalism.

 

DWG’s Health & Safety Policy details the objectives and key performance indicators to enable us to achieve our H&S aims.

  • We expect and demand our people work safely at all times.

  • We train our people to the highest standard and expect in return the highest standards of health and safety.

We are also fully committed to ensuring all of our operatives are TG20:13 and SG4 compliant.

 

“Evidently, the bricklayers are benefiting from a close liaison with the scaffolding division. This has resulted in good quality edge protection both proactively, such as the example shown in the right-hand photograph, where window openings are protected with a simple but effective Clipper arrangement, but also on a reactive basis. An example of this has been the opening on the 2nd floor of the marketing suite where a compliant and effective handrail has been placed around the stair opening, even though the intention was to have the stairs in place. Another benefit is that scaffold is set at the most sensible platform height, improving the working environment and potentially reducing repetitive based manual handling injuries.”
