Kehoe Contractors Ltd as a responsible and experienced employer recognises the need for clearly defined policies to determine the impact of the business on its employees and the wider community is effectively controlled.
We recognise the paramount importance of the health and safety of our workforce and customers. We understand that these groups of people and others will be exposed to the inherent risks involved in our construction activities. We will use our best endeavours to reduce or eliminate these risks by assessment of the workplace and the associated construction activities. We will actively encourage dialogue with all levels of employee and sub contractors to encourage everyone involved in the construction process to recognise their responsibility for the safety of themselves and others.
We have had no serious injury to anyone involved in the company since records began and we are committed to keeping this record intact as an expression of our continuing commitment to safety.
We have embraced the nationally recognised CSCS scheme and intend that all operative hold at least a green card showing a level of competence appropriate to construction activities.
We are currently renewing our 'Chas' (contractors Health and Safety Scheme) approval and registration giving confidence to our clients that we maintain competent systems in place.
We recognise the value to the local community of maintaining a workforce that relates to and is proud of the area that they live in. We like to think that local people are happier working in their own communities and we advertise our vacancies locally in the first instance.
We employ people directly and as sub contractors as it is our policy not to discriminate against any group if they wish to work under the self-employed status.
We will provide all benefits to our workforce currently required by statute and in addition will provide training and further development should this be of direct benefit to the organisation. We believe a motivated workforce can be energised by a good working environment and we encourage an open honest relationship between the members of the workforce that maintains both corporate and individual integrity.
Linked to the above we recognise that although the physical constraints of construction work can be a barrier to some peoples’ ability to work in the industry we will not discourage any applicant from seeking or continuing employment with us for any reason. In this way we seek to encourage both diversity and equality of opportunity in the way we deal with personnel.
We will strive to ensure we deal with people in a fair, honest and equitable way at all times.
It is inevitable that construction activities, whether for a new or regeneration project, will impact negatively on the environment. We expect, as our client also do, our approach to the environment to show a respect for the impact we have on the environment.
We will seek to comply with environmental legislation and also to minimise noise, waste pollution and energy consumption. We will also seek to maximise recycling of waste products and their re-use wherever possible.
