HSE Launch the 'Health and Work' Strategy

With the release of the latest HSE Health and Work strategy, safety is high on the Government’s agenda, and more pressure is being put on companies to ensure employee safety is a workplace priority.

At Cordant Group Health & Safety is integral and absolutely fundamental to everything we represent. Our ‘Safety First’ approach ensures we have the correct tools, systems and procedures in place to proactively monitor, manage and improve workplace safety.

At Cordant when we say ‘Safety first’, that is exactly what we mean. We are committed to creating a safe working environment for everyone and continually strives to improve health and safety performance by setting a minimum 10% year on year improvement target for all KPI’s.

HSE have launched this strategy at a time where it is desperately needed. Research has shown that over 12,000 deaths occur each year due to occupational diseases and 26 million working days are lost due to illness.

The Health and Work strategy helps and guides companies such as Cordant to ensure that their employees health is at the forefront of their operations. Our Step Carefully process operates in line with the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and ensures that the best practicable methods of compliance are achieved. To support our commitment, as well as the continual improvement of all health and safety matters, we have developed an Occupational Health and Safety Management System in compliance with OHSAS 18001:2007.
