Health & Safety

J Coffey’s Health & Safety Strategy has, at its heart, the concepts of Sensible Health & Safety and shows the company’s commitment to continual improvement.

Being “risk aware, not risk averse,” is built into the company’s whole approach to managing risk in all aspects of its business. Sensible Health & Safety awareness is key to ensuring that Managers can deliver on their service priorities whilst ensuring the risks are managed in a sensible, proportionate and legal way.The strategy supports the company’s priorities, and in particular supports the priority of maximising wellbeing by addressing the potential health and safety risks from the company’s service delivery.

“Think Safe, Be Safe” is a motto we live by.  It is very important that our employees go home safe every day. .”
