UK’s Global Rail Construction Recognised for Safety Excellence
The health and safety of our employees and others who may be affected by our activities has always been of paramount importance to Global Rail Construction Limited (GRCL).
This can be evidenced by a recent safety commendation at the S&C South Alliance, where the company were ranked in the top 3 for Period 10 in respect of their Signalling and Telecommunications (S&T) work. This is a monthly forum, where all supply chain partners attend, so it is great for GRCL to be recognised for its excellence in safety amongst our peers.
Safety and well-being is central to GRCL’s approach. The continuous improvement in occupational health and safety management and performance is achieved through the implementation and maintenance of an occupational health and safety management system (SMS), which meets the requirements of OHSAS 18001:2007.
Global Rail Construction’s safety management ethos is based on risk assessment and control throughout its operations. The company constantly endeavours to provide a safe place of work, with safe and maintained plant, equipment and systems of work.
This approach is enhanced through the provision of appropriate information, instruction and training on and off site, ensuring safe use of materials and substances and by diligently working to prevent accidents.
Mick Walsh, GRCL’s Head of Resource, attended the day and added:
“It was great to receive such praise and this has been duly acknowledged by our client Colas, through a further extension of our current contract with them. What a fantastic effort from our Southern based teams”.
