Our approach to Health & Safety is at the forefront of each project from procurement through to the day to day activities carried out on site. Our dedicated Health & Safety Team are encouraged to have a pro-active approach to safety and the environment to ensure tasks can be undertaken to meet Client expectations but not at the risk of safety to our workforce.

We invest in our employees to ensure all personnel have the qualifications and experience to carry out their duties safely. Our on-going pursuit to minimise risk has resulted in levels of on-site management and qualifications that exceed the requirements set out by our Clients. Our workforce is fully compliant with the Construction Skills Certification Scheme and we have dedicated Site Management Supervisors and Temporary Works Co-ordinators.

Regular in-house training and apprenticeships guidance aids in the progression of construction knowledge which is monitored via an annual auditing process. By engaging directly with our workforce we have encouraged a behavioural change to safety in the work place which is engrained from our senior management through to site operatives.

Our commitment to quality management has enabled the company to meet the criteria set out within ISO 9001 since 2006. The principles under which we manage the company benefit from the procedural structure and auditing process making Houlihan & Co leaders in sustaining workload to deliver our Clients requirements in terms of quality, budget and time constraints.
