One of our five key values is ‘Always putting safety first’
We wanted to explain and manage our safety commitments and priorities in way that was easy to recognise and understand. We also saw that what safety means now is more all encompassing. We wanted to make sure that we were inclusive of every possible outcome ensuring the safety and wellbeing of our people and customers without discouraging creativity and while nuturing and protecting the environments and communities we live and work in.
Welcome to the Wellbeing, Improvement, Safety, Health and Environment Strategy or WISHES as we like to call it.
We developed a concise handbook to easily explain what our commitments and priorities are for the next year. It incorporates the aims and objectives of our client Highways England, our parent companies and our own values and behaviours.
Going beyond the traditional role of preventing harm WISHES commits us to continuous improvement regarding the wellbeing, inclusion, safety and health of our employees and stakeholders and addresses the environmental impacts resulting from the service we provide.
