Health, Safety, Environmental and Quality

Health & Safety

Our Health & Safety Initiative ‘Don’t Walk By’ is now firmly embedded within the culture of Gilbert-Ash. It was developed to challenge the industry norm, go beyond compliance and create an environment that ensures our employees, supply chain and all other stakeholders know that their safety and well-being is central, throughout everything that we do as a business. In accordance with our ISO45001 management system, we are committed to investing in behavioural safety and continue to improve our overall performance.

Environment

We know the impact our operations can have on our ecosystem and biodiversity and have taken steps to ensure we always protect and when possible enhance the natural environment. In accordance with our ISO14001 management system we have developed procedures to ensure we always assess the risk, to ensure the environment is considered throughout all of our business operations.

We are also proud to be implementing the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. These are blueprints to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. They address the global challenges we face, including poverty, inequality, climate change, environmental degradation, peace and justice.

Quality

We take a proactive approach to quality management to ensure we not only meet, but also exceed our customer expectations. In accordance with our ISO9001 management system we have developed an innovative approach to quality management centred around pre-planning, planning, implementation, handover, delivery, review, lessons learned and customer care.

We have produced a rigorous and cutting-edge inspection and test process that has been integrated with our supply chain management procedure, ensuring we achieve a “right first time” approach on all our projects.

Building Relation through Social Value

Gilbert-Ash is committed to maximizing the positive impact we can have in the communities we work in. This includes providing opportunities for apprenticeships, placements and the long-term unemployed.

Ethical Business

We are committed to responsible business by operating in an ethical and transparent manner. We recognise our responsibility to incorporate social, environmental and ethical operations into our business particularly with regards our procurement procedures, life cycle of the products we use and the rights of workers across our supply chain.

Employees & Workforce

We are committed to building a strong diverse workforce and supply chain in accordance with our “Together As One” initiative. We will continue to invest in the professional development of our people, to ensure we retain the in-house knowledge and expertise required by our industry.
