Health & Safety
Maintaining our health and safety record
It is simple – safety has to be paramount in all that we plan and do, across all the market sectors with which Murphy are involved. We keep our people, our clients and the public safe, which in turn ensures the safe delivery of projects.
Our workforce are our greatest asset so, in order to meet our suitably-exacting health and safety standards, the Safety Management System we employ, based upon the requirements of OHSAS 18001:2007, is continuously reviewed and updated appropriately for each Division. The Director for Health and Safety is responsible for communicating the policy throughout the Group and for ensuring that the organisation and resources are available to ensure it is implemented and reviewed at least once a year so that our safety record matches our quality.
We also maintain strong links with the wider industry, through our Trade Association Memberships with: The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents; the British Safety Council; the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health; the Construction Health and Safety Group; the British Standards Institution; the Institute of Risk Management; and the International Institute of Risk & Safety Management.
