What you need to know

Health & Safety

All management and supervisory personnel are charged with the responsibility for planning safety into each work task and for preventing the occurrence of incidents and/or controlling conditions/actions that could lead to occupational injuries or illnesses.

The ultimate success of a safety and health program depends upon the full cooperation of each individual employee. 
Management at H.N.Storey Ltd assumes the responsibility and is prepared to take the necessary actions to see that safety and health rules and practices are enforced, and to ensure that effective training programs are employed to the best advantage.


We are committed to safety underlined by our continued commitment to the Health and Safety of our employees; all of our operatives possess CSCS Cards and as a Company have demonstrated our commitment by achieving Gold Standard certification from CITB.

Safety will never be sacrificed for production. Safety is an integral part of quality control, cost reduction and job efficiency. All supervisors will be held accountable for the safety performance of employees under their supervision. 
Our goal is the total elimination of accidents from our operations, allowing each employee to return safely home to his or her family.

Customer Safety

Chas Membership

Our successful assessment further underpins our solid commitment to providing a safe environment for our workforce. 

The Local Government Association, Trades Union Congress and the Institution of Occupational Health (IOSH) have formally endorsed the scheme.

At the CHAS national launch in June 2001 at the Royal Festival Hall, Bill Callaghan, Chair of the Health and Safety Commission said of CHAS. 
”Your scheme fits squarely into the procurement agenda where the public sector uses their position as clients in assessing health and safety capabilities and competence of contractors wishing to work for them. I believe this is an excellent scheme and think it will work as an effective tool in enhancing the performance of health and safety, particularly in small and medium sized businesses which are so much more challenging to reach.”
