At Mackoy, the well-being of every operative on our worksites is always our highest priority. This is why we invest heavily into Health and Safety measures to keep everyone safe.
We're not content to just comply at Mackoy, but actively look for new ways of improving our practices as taking your eye off the ball in groundworks can cost lives.
We've worked hard to establish an excellent health and safety record at Mackoy, never ceasing to review and update our training in line with the latest industry legislations. We also engage third-party safety officers to audit our practices on top of the weekly inspections our own SHEQ team undertake across all our live builds.
Training our operatives is key to maintaining the consistently high safety standards that our clients have come to expect from us. So, as well as investing in new plant and tools, we're forever trialling new initiatives to help us improve safe practices in every area of our business. These include upgrading our excavation toolkit to include Air Picks – a safer means of excavating near live services, and adding Hydrema and Thwaites closed-cab dumper trucks to our plant.
Mackoy does not tolerate unsafe practices on our worksites under any circumstances. So, as well as in-house training to refresh our operatives' memories on the safe handling of our plant, we also issue our Mackoy Good Practice Guide to all our site compounds. This guide forms a key part of our groundwork handbook, outlining the processes and procedures operatives need to follow on-site to stay safe. These are just a few of the reasons why leading Health and Safety regulators endorse our practices.
