Health, Safety, Environment & Quality
We believe that the safety of our workforce and those around us should receive the highest priority. To this end we have developed a Safety Management System that has been audited and registered with the OHSAS 18001 - Safety Management Systems.

We have also developed and improved our approach to the environment and through an external audit with BSi have been accredited with ISO 14001 - Environmental Management System.

Rock & Alluvium also operate an externally audited ISO 9001 - Quality Management System ensuring quality delivery, customer focus and continuous improvement.

We ensure the four pillars of safe working are provided:
  • A Safe System of Work
  • A Competent Workforce
  • A Safe Working Environment
  • Effective Supervision
Rock & Alluvium are also members of:
  • Federation of Piling Specialists (Fully Audited)
  • CHAS - Health & Safety Management
  • SMAS
To ensure Health & Safety is always the top priority of all our staff we created the Richard Brown Memorial Shield, this is awarded to the Foreman and Piling Team who have made the most pro-active contribution to safety each year.
