The health and wellbeing of all our staff is of great importance to us. We encourage all colleagues to speak out about any issues that concern them.
Wellbeing is encouraged through regular sessions with our occupational health provider, on a monthly basis. Our appointed SEQOHS accredited occupational health provider supports us and the wellbeing of our colleagues by managing new starter health assessments, undertaking safety critical worker assessments, health surveillance, drug and alcohol testing and sickness absence.
We also promote external resources including the Construction Industry Helpline Card, issued to all our operatives. Should they be in need of support, they can ring the helpline, which is managed and funded by the Lighthouse Construction Industry Charity, which has been delivering charitable welfare and support to the construction community since 1956. https://www.constructionindustryhelpline.com/
To promote wellbeing across our sites, we have utilised poster awareness campaigns through organisations including ‘Mates in Mind’, to highlight the importance of mental health. ‘Mates in Mind’ is a registered UK charity raising awareness and addressing the stigma of poor mental health with the aim of promoting positive wellbeing across the workplace.
