At Bennie we aim to be a role model and understand that we have ownership and accountability in reducing our environmental impact. Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is a modern term, but it perfectly encapsulates the ideals and principles on which our business was founded, and which remain the key to our business today.
We have a responsibility to protect our environment, we believe that the long-term future of our Group and the planet is best served by being open, honest and trustworthy, sharing the knowledge and respecting the environmental interests of all our employees, customers, suppliers and the wider community. We actively seek opportunities to evolve and be innovative within the environment and to contribute to the well-being of the communities in which we operate.
The construction industry is a leader of environmental management with most of our clients aiming at BREEAM to improve environmental standards. Our awareness of this is always at the forefront when entering any stage of the construction process, from procurement, planning, design, construction, through to final handover.
Our aim is to make environmental awareness part of our DNA. Our teams embrace change and are trained and encouraged to be aware of the effect their operations have on the environment. By careful planning we manage this risk to controllable levels, ensuring our operations have minimum impact and meet legal requirements.
In all our operations the health, safety and welfare of employees, visitors and the general public is vital. We consistently achieve this through a good behavioural culture that aims to give & encourage constructive feedback. Our approach is to share the knowledge and provide regular training for our people. All our construction staff and operatives hold CSCS and/or CPCS cards. We hold regular safety meetings and frequent on-site toolbox talks coupled with safety briefs.
We constantly communicate updates and changes in legislation and incorporate best practice, processes and procedures to all our staff. These activities reinforce our responsible approach to Health & Safety.
