Churngold Remediation pride ourselves in providing a safe working environment for everyone who could be affected by our operations. Recipients of a ROSPA Gold Medal Award 2012 Churngold also work regularly in the petrochemical and blue chip industrial sectors and hence are conversant with the stringent procedures that such sites demand. The Health and Safety Committee led by the Safety Director meet regularly to review statistics and address training and development issues. Each live project site has its own Health and Safety Committee chaired by the Site Manager.
Churngold Remediation is fully conversant with the requirements of the CDM Regulations 2007 and regularly fulfil the role of Principal Contractor.
Employees are encouraged to undertake and formerly log any last minute risk assessments and also to identify and report near misses. Then pro-active measures can be put in place to prevent an incident occurring. Near-misses are communicated to all sites to reinforce learning outcomes.
Third party Health and Safety specialists are employed by Churngold to visit every site they work on, providing independent reports on a fortnightly basis or to suit the requirements of the particular site.
Safe systems of work also ensure our works protect the environment particularly as contamination is encountered on every site we work on. Churngold Remediation work to a comprehensive EMS System in accordance with ISO 14001 and are accredited to BS 8555 Level 5. We measure our environmental performance by the volume of soil we divert from landfill and continually seek to provide more sustainable solutions by our on-going development of ex-situ and in-situ technologies.
All staff undergo regular occupational health checks including sub-contractors where required.
