Health & Safety

We operate a management system, which is fully compliant to the current legislative requirements of construction operations. This system is in accordance with the requirements of OSHAS 18001.

Askam’s excellent health and safety record is a credit to every member of the company understanding the role they have to play and taking responsibility for everyone’s health, safety and welfare – from Ground Worker to Managing Director.

Monitoring systems are in place and frequent inspections and health and safety audits are carried out to ensure the company’s high standards are rigorously maintained.

All staff have CSCS cards as standard and each employee is trained and accredited to undertake their specific role, from 5 day Site Managers Safety Training Scheme (SMSTS), 3 day first aid courses, confined spaces, manual handling, water hygiene, streetworks and Construction Plant Competence Scheme (CSPS) tickets, to name but a few.

Askam are members of Constructionline and CHAS.
