Construction firm The Premier Group dedicates workshop to health and safety

With health and safety at the top of The Premier Group's new year resolution, the Swansea-based construction company has dedicated a workshop to behavioural safety and preventing onsite accidents and injuries.

The construction arm of The Premier Group - which received the Gold Award at the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) Occupational Health and Safety Awards last year - held the health and safety workshop last week at Swansea football club’s Liberty Stadium.

Site managers and senior management from the national specialist in construction and maintenance work attended the event along with contractors the company has partnerships with.

Ashley Davies, health and safety manager at the construction division of The Premier Group, said: “One of our Premier Values is leading safety, as preventing accidents and injuries is a business priority. Running these health and safety workshops allow us to engage more with our people, helping our safety message and skills to really be understood.

"Our internal campaigns and activities on this important topic show the company’s commitment and dedication to achieving success in health and safety, as well as looking after our employees. Our customers can in turn have confidence they are in safe hands when appointing The Premier Group.”

Steve Evans, managing director of the construction division of The Premier Group, added: “The construction division of The Premier Group prides itself on its impeccable health and safety standards. Such initiatives mean our construction team can take what they have learned away with them ready for use when on site. This ensures our team can assertively showcase our ability to solve problems, offering improvements for the client while maintaining the highest standards of health and safety.”
