Health & Safety Management

A safe working environment is at the heart of everything we do and our uncompromising approach to the safety of every employee, client and supplier is a cornerstone of the Lindner Facades belief system.

An uncompromising approach to health and safety

Every single one of our construction projects has a tailored and collaborative approach to health and safety, no matter what size or level of complexity.

With health and safety at the very core of our business, our aim is to be recognised as the safest building envelope contractor in the UK – ensuring no harm to our people, surrounding trades or the public.

We set demanding key performance indicators, measure our goals, minimise our risks and ensure we conform to and maintain the BS OHSAS 18001:2007 standard of accreditation. Also, we achieve successful certification to Achilles and CHAS on a consistent basis.

Our experienced health and safety managers, and external consultants, carry out frequent inspections on each site and office, and senior management and directors regularly undertake tours of our projects.

Without exception, information gathered from performance measurements and audits is always reviewed and lessons learned are cascaded into the business.

We create the right culture

Health and safety is integrated into every aspect of our work processes and thus we encourage and engage with employees, creating a safe working culture and resulting in continuous improvement.

Safety for us is a mindset and an attitude adopted by everyone from our managing director to our newest recruit; it is not only viewed and stated simply as our number one priority, it is always considered a core value that is instilled in all areas of our company.

Our people are encouraged to report all near misses or any change in conditions straight away. We ensure that everyone is in a position to identify risks on a daily basis. This is valued highly by our clients and main contractors, and has significantly contributed towards constantly improving our own health and safety record. We also recognise that communication is key to our success, and our Health and Safety Forums provide an invaluable framework for consultation.
