Health & Safety

At Tarmac we always put health and safety first, and our goal is for everyone who works with us to return home unharmed at the end of each day, including customers, contractors, employees and the general public. 

Our safety strategy concentrates efforts on Safety Behaviours, Visible Felt Leadership (VFL) and Safe Management of our people. Our leadership team regularly discusses safety, brainstorms ideas, creates solutions, and are committed to promote Ultimate Safety and reach our goal of Zero Harm. Our most senior leadership have visited all Tarmac sites in the UK and carried out face to face discussions about safety.

We adopt a strategic approach to managing the occupational health of our employees.  There are three principles that support this approach:

Prevention

  • Complete an occupational risk assessment for all employees
  • Follow the hierarchy of control so that occupational risk is as low as is reasonably practicable
  • Provide high quality health surveillance based on risk assessment

Intervention & Support

  • Early identification of occupational health illness or disease
  • Quality medical advice
  • Quality health care

Health & Well Being

  • Health screening
  • Health at home
  • Focussed health campaigns
