We continually strive for improvements within our business and pursue excellence through active leadership and the operation of an integrated Health and Safety, Quality and Environmental Management System. This approach includes establishing clear goals and responsibilities.
The Improvement philosophy is well established and implemented by a dedicated team constantly developing our Health and Safety, Quality and Environmental Management systems which are certified to ISO9001:2008, ISO14,001:2004 and BS-OHSAS 18001: 2007
We also operate under National Highways Sector Scheme Approvals which ensures that all processes are planned, focused on quality and are completed by a trained and competent workforce. This includes the following schemes:
2A Design and/or Supply, Installation and Repair of Fences for Infrastructure Works
2B Supply, Installation, Maintenance and Repair of Vehicle Restraint Systems
7 Application of Road Marking Materials and Road Studs to Road Surfaces

We set high standards for ourselves and our supply chain and can demonstrate year-on-year improvements in our safety performance. Enforcement of the system is through a top-down regime of inspection and auditing.
We set challenging targets to reduce the environmental impact of our activities which contain sophisticated systems for assessing and benchmarking our progress.
Our environmental management team leads the company approach to sustainability and in particular initiatives aimed at increasing energy efficiency, integrating waste management, protecting flora and fauna and promoting recycling and the use of recycled materials.
We constantly monitor and measure our performance using Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and benchmark internally between contracts and externally through forums such as the Highway Works Best Value Benchmarking Club.
