Safety, Health & Environment (SHE)
Maintaining exceptional performance through continual improvement in health, safety and environmental management is at the core of our business.
The welfare of our people, clients and sub-contractors is fundamental to our exceptional service delivery in a sustainable environment, and will never be compromised. We believe City Group’s continuing success in delivering best practice HSE management is not simply the result of a policy or an activity, but the consequence of our commitment, under-pinning behaviours and safe cultural development.
This commitment is what enables us to deliver exceptional performance year on year, whilst meeting and exceeding our customers’ expectations. We operate an Integrated Management System which forms a integral part of employee induction and progressive training programmes.
Our HSE programme is readily accessible to all employees. It provides access to our integrated rules and guidance, resources, risk assessments, task sheets, training material, method statements toolbox talks and communication media.
Balancing short and long term interests and integrating economic, environmental and social considerations into all business decision-making.
As we and our clients understand more about sustainable development, we’re finding that, in fact, it offers a key to future prosperity. Exceptional quality service increasingly needs to address both clients functional needs and their concerns about the environment and social responsibility.
We are working closely with our clients to meet these needs. Our core planned maintenance service is based on ensuring that equipment is operating efficiently and for its whole lifecycle. This minimises environmental impact and reduces health and safety risks.
We’ve instigated energy and cost saving lighting projects for many of our clients. This has involved replacing and updating the lighting within buildings, introducing intelligent light control systems and replacing and updating street lighting. Monitoring and analysing results from the controls in building management systems has reduced total energy consumption.
Resulting changes to plant operational times have brought energy and cost savings to a range of clients and we are undertaking more and more major works to reduce environmental impacts.
