Today (Thursday 28 April) marks the UN’s official World Day for Health and Safety at Work. This year’s theme is focused on the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and how it has caused a shift in working arrangements, for instance, our dependency on meeting online. Attention has also been given to the benefits of occupational health and safety systems. At SLPE, are proud to have recently achieved our certification for ISO 45001:2018 (Health & Safety Management System), which reflects our health and safety-driven attitude.
“Each member of our close-knit team takes pride in safeguarding health and safety in our workplace”, said Navraj Sokhi, FEA Specialist at SLPE. “As an example of this, we recently spent the day with St John Ambulance learning about the practical approach that can be taken to support someone who is experiencing a mental health issue at work. This time was an all-round success and we now have fully trained first aiders and mental health responders on our team, who play an active role in safeguarding staff wellbeing.
Our inward focus on health and safety is reflected in our commitment to deliver the best possible value for our customers through a safety-focused, sustainable approach. This forms part of our holistic offering of a comprehensive package of specialist skills required to handle challenging engineering projects.
“Our clients need to be assured that we take safety seriously”, Navraj added. “This is where our 35 years of offshore engineering experience comes in useful, as our capability to deliver safety-focused projects is demonstrated by our impressive track record”.
