Health & Safety

Statistics will tell you that construction is still one of Britain’s riskiest industries. At Tasker Catchpole, we go to enormous lengths to prove the figures wrong.

To us, Health & Safety is more than just a set of rules and regulations. It’s a state of mind shared by every member of our team, and it informs everything we do, wherever we’re working. Creating this culture takes time and effort. It forms a central part of our Apprenticeship schemes, ensuring our new entrants develop the right attitudes and abilities from the very start of their careers. Supported by Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) advisors, we run continuous training programmes for all our staff, to keep their knowledge and practical skills fully up-to-date. We also choose partners and subcontractors who operate to the same high standards.

We’re a Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme (CHAS) Accredited Constructor, and have a comprehensive Health and Safety Policy Statement, which you’re welcome to view any time. To request a copy, please contact us.

Building a brighter future for everyone

We take our responsibilities to the natural world, and the communities we work in, very seriously. We have a comprehensive environmental policy based on the proven principles of ‘reduce, reuse and recycle’: we’re also specialists in sustainable materials and technologies.
