Health & Safety

Following best practice Health & Safety measures means that CORDE are qualified to handle any task, whatever the complexity.

Health & Safety

The Health, Safety and Wellbeing of our team, partners and the people in our community where we live and work is paramount. We have systems in place to deliver that, certified to the international standard, ISO 45001:2018 (Occupational Health & Safety Management).

For us making sure everyone goes home safe is vital – but we are also building our people systems in such a way to ensure that our team get personal and professional benefit from their work here too. That is one of the reasons why the term “connected” is so core to our brand. When it comes to our team and how we work together, we believe “duty of care” goes beyond compliance and so we are building in care into how we treat and work with each other to build in positive, sustainable long term health, safety and wellbeing.

Permit processes to prescribe how a task is to be performed and any limitations.
Full cover personal protection equipment (PPE) worn always.
Monitoring and regular site inspections, both scheduled and random.

CORDE has taken a strong but caring approach to the COVID pandemic from the start receiving very positive feedback from the team on the approach, levels of support and communication provided.

Notable in that response was the decision not to mandate vaccination but to recognise the diversity in our team while maintaining the best in controls to mitigate the risk.
