Health & Safety
O’Mac Construction recognises the general principles of prevention and protection as stated in the Health & Safety at Work Act 1974, the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999, the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 and all other relevant statutory provisions and amendments. An ongoing policy for Health & Safety training ensures that both managerial staff and site operatives are continually updated in all aspects of our work.
We are accredited to CHAS - Contractors Health & Safety Assessment Scheme. CHAS is a non-commercial scheme available to suppliers and to organisations looking to work with suitably competent contractors. We have held this accreditation for many years and work closely with auditors and other professionals to ensure that as a company we are fully compliant with all current regulations and have a full understanding of how best to manage Health and Safety in the workplace and maintain a safe working environment for all our staff, clients, visitors and members of the public alike.
We are currently working towards ISO 450001 certification of our Occupational Health and Safety Management System (OH&SMS). This international standard demonstrates the company’s ongoing commitment to meet optimum occupation health and safety standards throughout its operations, and demonstrates its commitment to proactively improve its system of preventing accidents and ill-health whilst delivering all projects to the highest international standards.
