Health & Safety

A safe and healthy working environment for Chepstow Plant International employees has always been the top priority and a core value.

Health and Safety is at the core of Chepstow Plant International’s ethos and is an initiative which underpins the culture of the organisation. The company strives to manage risk well within the workplace, to establish a “Zero-Harm” environment.

Chepstow Plant International has established a comprehensive Health & Safety management system across the company and is externally certified to the OHSAS18001:1999 specification in addition to ISO14001:2004 (environment) and ISO9001:2000 (quality). Having adopted an integrated approach to health, safety, quality and the environment, the company assess and monitor all activities in relation to their potential impact on people, the environment and customer quality.

In line with the company’s core values, the Directors and Managers consider Health and Safety as promoting importance in all business activities, and are fully committed to continual improvement of the business’s Health & Safety performance. This concept is reiterated through Chepstow Plant International’s Managing Director, John Corcoran, who has been recognised at various past MPA awards. Further to this, Chepstow Plant International helped to create the Contractors Safety Partnership in 2012. Since established, the forum has been applauded throughout the industry for its outstanding achievements within the contractor’s safety section.

Chepstow Plant International continually engages with the workforce through personal interaction. This encourages a universal approach to Health and Safety: including directors, senior managers and middle managers to engage employees. This concept therefore provides the company with greater employee participation, and ensures that the company moves towards a culture of inter-dependence.
