Health & Safety

Our team of skilled professionals holds essential UK certifications, including the 18th Edition IET Wiring Regulations (BS 7671), City & Guilds 2391 Inspection and Testing, and ECS (Electrotechnical Certification Scheme) cards, ensuring they are well-versed in the latest electrical safety practices. We follow the guidelines laid out by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and the National Inspection Council for Electrical Installation Contracting (NICEIC), emphasizing the importance of proper training, personal protective equipment (PPE), and clear communication. By continually investing in our workforce’s education and promoting a culture of safety, we maintain an exceptional safety record while delivering high-quality electrical services to our valued clients.

We promote a safety culture across all our activities. We set annual targets. for reductions in accident injury rates, time lost associated with injury and work-related illness and for senior management inspections on site, as well as health & safety audit scores. On our sites, managers have the responsibility of delivering health & safety. They are fully trained and use systems that help deal with the range of risks. They are also supported. by a team of full-time health and safety professionals including specialists in occupational health.

We run programs on health and safety competence for our employees, using our in-house specialists as well as external providers. Everyone is encouraged to take proactive action to address unsafe work practices.

Across the whole JS Electrical Team, senior staff are appointed with responsibility for health and safety in each division and these ‘safety champions’ review performance and guide the strategy for continual improvement.
