Our commitments to health, safety and the environment
Preserving the health and safety of our employees and clients is paramount to us at Rainham, and we take our responsibility to protect the environment for future generations very seriously.
Our company policies underpin our commitment to:
- Ensure our employees return home unharmed to their families at the end of each day
- Ensure other people are not harmed by our activities
- Protect the environment by working in ways that will not compromise it for future generations
- Use quality management to reduce business risks, increase customer satisfaction and drive continuous improvement
Rainham’s dedicated Safety, Health, Environmental & Quality (SHEQ) department provides comprehensive training, support and checks to ensure the work we carry out complies with Health, Safety & Environmental legislation and approved codes of practice, standards and guidance.
In everything we do, we strive to meet and exceed our customer’s and our own SHEQ requirements.
