Zero RIDDOR Reportable Accidents for J Coffey Construction in 2016.
We recognise the importance of creating and maintaining a safe work environment for our operatives and stakeholders affected by our works, to this end we apply a robust regime of procedures and controls through our Health & Safety management system that has been UKAS accredited to OHSAS 18001.
Further recognition of this system has been received as we have gained six consecutive RoSPA Gold Awards for Occupational Health & Safety in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015.

Because we know that our clients expect the highest standards of work from us we adopt a Total Quality Management approach (TQM). The controls and processes that we have implemented are UKAS accredited to ISO 9001.
From inception to final delivery we monitor progress on site through to post contract review to ensure that our standards are maintained, best practice identified and where possible our approach is improved.
As well as being accredited to ISO 9001 we hold the Achilles ‘Building Confidence’ accreditation.

We recognise the effect of our operations on the environment and in order to mitigate these impacts we have developed an Environmental Management System (EMS) accredited to ISO 14001.
Environmental training now forms a fundamental part of our EMS compliance and to this end we ensure all site managers are issued with a project specific environmental file containing all the necessary documentation and information. All staff undergo an internal environmental induction.
Sites are regularly audited on environmental controls and procedures to ensure we are compliant with our ISO 14001 standard along with relevant environmental legislation. Further support is available when required from our Chartered Environmental Manager.
All materials and goods are procured from sustainable sources.

Sustainability has become a major input into construction projects and with it the emphasis on companies to act in a responsible way.
At J. Coffey Construction, we acknowledge the importance of sustainability and always look to integrate sustainable work practice into our work practices:
We recently won the CIRIA ‘Big Biodiversity Challenge’ award for Community Engagement
We also gained Gold membership with the Supply Chain Sustainability School where we actively engage in their e-learning workshops.
We employ an in-house Environmental Manager, Adrian Clamp, who is a Chartered Environmentalist, current Chair of the Sustainability Support Group and a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB).
J Coffey Construction supports the work Adrian does outside of his role, in providing support for the Chartered Environmental Workshops that he runs for the CIOB three times a year and ongoing support to those seeking to gain the qualification through active engagement with their submissions.
