This page outlines our commitment to health and safety and provides an overview of the measures we have implemented to ensure the well-being of everyone associated with our organisation.
TOTAL are fully committed to establishing new ways to reducing risks on our projects
Safety is the fundamental principle of how we work, it comes before all other considerations and is truly at the heart of our business. This is proved by the fact that Safety & Training – which supplies safety training, testing and consultancy – is part of the Total Group of companies.
We recognise we work within a hazardous environment and treat our responsibility towards the safety and welfare of both our own and our customer’s employees with the utmost importance.
Total have an exemplary Health & Safety record, and this is coupled with a dedicated in-house team who look to ensure we continue to deliver health and safety excellence. Ways in which we look to enhance the safety of our operation include:
- Training and education of our employees to ensure they have the kills, knowledge, and qualifications to adhere to the safest working practices
- Equipment fitted and kept to the highest standards of health and safety
- Actively encourage our business partners to promote good health and safety practices as part of supplier approval and monitoring procedures.
- These initiatives and many more are reinforced by our comprehensive health and safety policy to provide and maintain a safe and healthy working environment for all employees, visitors, and customers.
At Total Group, we are dedicated to providing a safe and healthy workplace for everyone. We believe that accidents and injuries can be prevented through proper planning, training, and adherence to industry best practices. Our commitment to health and safety extends to all levels of our organization, from management to employees and subcontractors.

Our policies and procedures are regularly reviewed and updated to ensure compliance with the latest legal requirements. We strive to exceed the minimum legal obligations and aim to continuously improve our health and safety performance.
Identifying and managing potential hazards is a crucial aspect of our construction projects. We conduct thorough risk assessments to identify potential risks and implement appropriate control measures to mitigate them. Our employees and subcontractors are trained to recognize hazards and take necessary precautions to prevent accidents and injuries.
We believe that proper training and education are essential for maintaining a safe working environment. All employees and subcontractors receive comprehensive training on health and safety procedures, including emergency response protocols. We also provide regular updates and refresher courses to ensure that everyone remains up-to-date with the latest safety practices.
We value open and transparent communication with our employees, clients, and subcontractors. We encourage everyone to actively participate in discussions regarding health and safety matters. By fostering a culture of collaboration and consultation, we can identify potential risks and implement effective control measures.
In the event of an accident or near miss, we have a robust incident reporting and investigation process in place. We investigate all incidents thoroughly to determine the root causes and take appropriate corrective actions to prevent similar occurrences in the future. We also encourage employees and subcontractors to report any safety concerns or potential hazards promptly.
We are committed to continuously improving our health and safety performance. We regularly review our policies, procedures, and practices to identify areas for improvement. By learning from past experiences and embracing new technologies and methodologies, we strive to create a safer working environment for everyone involved in our construction projects.
Our Health and Safety Policy reflects our unwavering commitment to the well-being of our employees, clients, and the communities in which we operate. By adhering to this policy, we aim to foster a culture of safety, where everyone feels empowered to contribute to a secure working environment. Together, we can build a safer future.

Ensuring health and safety is a shared responsibility. While management is responsible for providing a safe working environment, employees are expected to adhere to the policies and procedures set forth by the company. We encourage open communication and collaboration between all levels of our organization to promote a culture of safety.
In the event of an emergency, we have established clear procedures to ensure the safety of our employees, customers, and visitors. Our emergency response plans are regularly reviewed and tested to ensure their effectiveness. We also provide training and drills to prepare our employees for various emergency situations.
Through a range of communications programmes and targeted training initiatives we are working hard to achieve our Target Zero goal: zero accidents and zero ill health caused by work.
