Health & Safety
KCA has a proactive and thorough approach to health and safety, alongside the environment it is at the heart of our business strategy. In such a potentially high risk trade health and safety is paramount to us, all our operatives are fully trained and hold the relevant qualifications.
We continuously strive to improve our performance and retain the services of a professional health and safety advisory team ensuring that our compliance, legislation and codes of practice are up to date. We acknowledge the requirements of the construction industry regulations and legal obligations under the health and safety at work act 1974.
We are also committed to reducing our carbon footprint and working towards more environmentally friendly construction methods.
We recognise it is a measure by which we are judged by our staff, clients and business partners, and therefore is a critical factor in our business and long term success.
We develop Environmental Action Plans for all of our projects; these therefore ensure that every option is considered to reduce and/or eliminate activates that have a negative impact on the environment.
We ensure that our vehicles and equipment used are well maintained, clean and are always operated within the legal limits, taking advantage, wherever possible, of engineering modifications to reduce pollution and emissions and to save unnecessary consumption.
We consistently engage with authorities, clients and our supply chain to promote the use of recyclable and reusable materials. We also encourage close liaison with the enforcing authorities, such as the Environment Agency and Local Authorities.
