Health and safety is an integral part of all our operations. As we work within highly regulated industries, we really understand the need to encourage best work practices at all times. Our health and safety management system is accredited to ISO 18001; and we are immensely proud of the RoPSA gold awards, along with other industry awards and accreditations.
We have a dedicated in-house compliance team to support all our operations, consisting of a technical director, a technical compliance manager, a quality manager, a group health and safety manager and a training manager (Key People) working alongside a support team of auditors and trainers.
The compliance team has the combined skills and experience to compile relevant policies and procedures, as well as providing practical support for our managers, assessing and delivering training, and carrying out audits.
As the work we undertake can be physically very demanding, we closely monitor the occupational health of our employees – reassuring to both our team and our clients. We also undertake random drug and alcohol testing across our workforce – again we believe that this reassures our clients that Shield operatives are not putting themselves or others at risk.
