Health & safety | Our number one priority
Throughout Brand, Hünnebeck and SGB the safety of our staff, our customers and the public is our highest priority. It takes precedence over all other aspects of our business.
Setting health & safety standards for the industry
In health and safety, our record (AFR) currently sets a standard for the industry. This requires constant effort in all aspects of risk management, process control, training and communication. Our responsibility is to exercise safety leadership and maintain a safety conscious working environment at every level of our operation. We are dedicated to making this attitude part of our culture and everyday activities.
Working in partnership with you
We work closely with our customers to ensure that clear standards of safety competence, co-operation and communication are strictly observed throughout a project. We conduct regular safety reviews, checks and inspections and work proactively with customers and other contractors to ensure we create a safe working environment for everyone working on or around our equipment. Working safely is the best way of keeping to budgets and deadlines.
