SHEQ stands for Safety, Health, Environment and Quality.

Although Health and Safety has only become an industry priority in the recent past, it has always been at the top of our agenda. This is proven by our Health and Safety record which is second to none amongst our peers. In an industry widely considered to be one of the most dangerous, we have never had a fatality – an achievement matched by few.Our expertly managed Health and Safety Systems have ensured that  we have not incurred a single reportable incident since 2009. 

Health and Safety - Given the nature of our works it is essential that we adopt a progressive, forward thinking approaching while ensuring our operations are carried out with the utmost care and attention. To support our commitment in this area we retain the services of external Health and Safety Consultants who provide advice, training and on-site weekly inspections. Senior Management works closely with them and have formed a "Safety Circle" which meets regularly to discuss site performance, legislative changes and particular training needs.

Environment - As an "Award Winning" Considerate Contractor H Smith (Engineers) are committed to achieving minimalenvironmental impact on all of its projects. We work closely with clients to provide innovative solutions to their environmental concerns and this has resulted in many of our high profile inner city projects achieving BREEAM excellent rating.

Our environmental activities on site are constantly monitored and maintained in accordance with our ISO14001 Management Systems and we pride ourselves on the way we educate and train our workforce to particpate in these initiatives. A recent example includes an 'end of job sweepstake' amongst site workers to guage how close the company is to their waste target. Such an excercise encourages our operatives to think more about waste.

Quality - Our philosophy for Quality Control does not necessarily focus on just assuring "good quality" but also to ensure that as an organisation we are consistent.

As an ISO 9001: 2008 accredited organisation we utilise quality assurance and control of processes to achieve more consistent quality. Practically this is achieved by undertaking internal and external system auditing and testing undertaken by our in-house Quality Manager. Any non conformances are recorded and remedied through our corrective action process.
