Our Board of Directors and staff are totally committed to the implementation and continuous improvement of the Integrated Management Systems governing our Health, Safety, Environmental and Quality Codes of Practice. These systems are living documents that are continually reviewed and improved in line with industry best practice.
First and foremost the guarantee of the health and safety of our employees and of all those effected by our construction operations is an absolute pre-requisite to conducting any work at any time. We have developed our systems and procedures over many years based on these ethics. As a result of this approach and investment, we have won many awards and are ranked among the top performers in the Irish construction industry in terms of the management of Health and Safety at Work.
Our Safety Management System complies with the requirements of OHSAS 18001 and is fully audited and certified.
At Bennett we contribute to our environments and develop structures which may last centuries. With this in mind, we are future centric in terms of the design and technology we apply. We recognise the importance of utilising the most modern and most sustainable materials within the construction process. We are proud to have built quite a number of iconic projects which have broken new grounds in terms of sustainable materials and innovative construction techniques. Bennett continuously strives to perform to sustainable best practice in construction in our mission to lesson our impact on our environment. Every new project for us is a challenge in search of a zero carbon footprint.
The area of the provision of more and more sustainable and renewable buildings is constantly evolving and changing and we are operating in very exciting and dynamic times. Bennett continues to innovate with every project every day and rigorously apply our Environmental Management Systems to achieve this.
