Health & Safety

Health and Safety is critical to our business performance and in defining the culture of the company.

At McGee we recognise that our operations give rise to risk, but believe that we can eliminate, or minimise that risk.  In addition to comprehensive training, a behavioural safety programme has been introduced, aimed at delivering a step change in performance to achieve outstanding safety results through the development of extraordinary leadership.

We continuously strive to safeguard members of the public at all times and achieve zero injuries or harm to our staff and sub-contractors.  Furthermore, we believe that everyone at McGee has a major part to play in achieving this aim.

All incidents and accidents, no matter how minor, are investigated thoroughly.  Lessons learnt from these investigations are, and will be, communicated to all of our operatives and sub-contractors.  We aim to prevent any such incidents happening again.

Safety training, that is appropriate to the role of each individual, is co-ordinated through our dedicated Safety Training Department. All on-site operatives, including sub-contractors, are provided with suitable and sufficient detail relating to the task to be performed and identification of the potential risks and control measures to eliminate, or reduce them.  We have a strict policy in relation to the supply and use of appropriate PPE, tools, materials and plant to be able to do their job safely.

We are committed to ensuring that our sites are safe.  To ensure continuous improvement, Directors and Senior Managers carry out regular safety tours and engage with the workforce and those of our sub-contractors to deliver our commitment and encourage them to make a positive impact every day.   Our Safety Incentive Schemes and Operative and Management Safety Forums provide an opportunity to communicate, motivate and engage.

Peace of mind

We aim to ensure peace of mind to our customers, our staff and the community around us.

We employ competent people who we provide further training to in order to fulfil their potential.  A significant proportion of our staff have been with McGee for many years.  New employees are vetted for their suitability for the task to be performed and monitored closely to ensure that they meet our goal of an accident and incident free environment.
