Health & Safety and BREEAM
Health & Safety
At the core of our business and everyday life, is our commitment to the health and safety of our staff, stakeholders, the general public and all those that work closely with Stilebridge on any given project.
We take our health and safety responsibilities very seriously and aim to not only meet them but excel at them. Stilebridge continually provides a safe and risk-free working environment, following the very latest safety guidelines and work closely with our specialist safety advisors to ensure we stay alert to best working practices, current industry legislation and new developments.
Continual training and assessment on a complete range of qualifications for all staff and operatives forms the backbone of Stilebridge’s continued success in maintaining its exemplary health and safety record. Stilebridge also operates a zero tolerance policy to sub-standard health and safety practice throughout all its operations across the entire organisation.
In recognition of our drive in health and safety excellence, we are proud holders of CHAS, Constructionline, SMAS WorkSafe Consultant and Safe Contractor accreditations.
Here at SBG, we are fully committed to ensuring our works have minimal impact on the environment. We are continuously improving our principles of sustainability and environmental processes.
On a day to day basis our whole workforce strive to achieve the key points of our strategy:
Minimising waste by evaluating operations and making sure they are being carried out in the most efficient way possible
- Bringing toxic emissions down to a minimum through constant upgrades to the plant fleet and the fuels it uses
- Ensuring that where possible materials are recycled – Land fill is the last option for any material being removed from site
- Sourcing sustainable products for use on our projects, minimising the environmental impact from the initial production of said products
- Meeting and exceeding all standard environmental legislations
As well as adopting the above methods within the SBG business, we also actively encourage the adoption of similar principles by our suppliers and sub-contractors.
Stilebridge Groundwork are committed to working with our partners, clients and waste disposal contractors to achieve the maximum sustainable benefit of BREEAM Certification. We offer facilities to minimise waste disposal from site to landfill and maximise recycling of materials both on site and off site by using screening, crushing, contamination dilution and careful segregation of materials using our strict policies for segregation of materials for disposal.
SBG are conscious of managing tight margins, maintaining a competitive advantage, managing changes and uncertainty in the market and protecting the environment. We are committed to providing projects which are healthy, cost effective, high performance, durable and environmentally friendly by addressing and managing sustainability related risk by best practice and experience.
Stilebridge Groundwork provides all our clients with a Construction Waste Management Plan to comply with the “Diversion of resources from landfill criteria” compliant with the BREEAM Accreditation.
