Every precaution is taken to protect our workforce and other people they encounter, wherever they are working: on site, in the offices or in the yard, by continually improving and enforcing safe working practices, processes and environments. Van Elle’s Safety team carries out regular audits to highlight areas for improvement and all staff are empowered to raise any matter of concern.
We launched our eight Golden Rules as part of our Safety Improvement Plan, to reinforce the key messages around behaviour and high-risk activities.
In addition, the company’s Think Safe Act Safe behavioural programme (previously known as Think Safely. Act Safely) has been established over 10 years and has improved awareness and prevented accidents. The Van Elle mobile app enables prompt and centralised recording and reporting of hazards and near misses, equipment inspections, toolbox talks, site audits and other safety matters.
Van Elle is an accredited CITB training provider delivering the Health and safety awareness, site supervisor safety training scheme (SSSTS) and Site management safety training scheme (SMSTS) courses.
