Health & Safety

Accident free for over 2.5 million man hours – that’s Walters’ proud claim and one that we’re able to champion as the outcome of years of hard work improving our processes, standards and health and safety culture. It’s a culture we promote within our business and beyond it – working in partnership with subcontractors and clients to ensure the safest possible sites.

As a result of these achievements, Walters has been recognised with Health and Safety Management System accreditation to OHSAS 18001.

Ours is a philosophy of continual improvement as we seek to ensure a safe working environment for our staff, other contractors and members of the public at large. To aid in H&S efficiency we maintain a training database for all our staff, so that site managers can see which operatives are qualified in which areas of expertise (including holders of CSCS, CCDO and CPCS cards, or the quarry industry’s ‘Passport to Safety’ scheme).
