Health & Safety

For the Board of Directors at Lakesmere, Health & Safety is one of the core values. We believe that the pursuit of excellence is not an option but a business necessity and aim to create the safest working environments in the industry. Lakesmere’s H&S policy is reviewed annually by the senior Management team and the Group SHEQ Manager. Where appropriate, training is identified and undertaken and regular site inspections are carried out to ensure that all operations are fully compliant.

Lakesmere’s dedicated Group SHEQ Manager (together with the SHEQ team) is responsible for H&S compliance, improvement, development and training. Prior to contract commencement a detailed Project Plan is prepared as a matter of course which includes an in-depth Method Statement, Risk Assessment, Manual Handling Assessment, COSHH Assessment, Quality and Environmental Plan.

In the company’s 21 year history there has been zero fatalities and no major instances recorded in the last 8 years.
