The health and safety of our people is of the utmost importance at Joseph Ash Galvanizing, and we have committed to ensuring our plants are safe environments to work and visit.
We excel at health and safety by investing in our people through the delivery of in-house bespoke health and safety training courses aligned to Joseph Ash Galvanizing’s business operations. Company directors, managers and supervisors all hold formal health and safety qualifications, and by embedding health and safety into the company culture and introducing an occupational health scheme to protect and maintain a healthy workforce, we have ensured ongoing best practice in health and safety management policies, procedures and systems, and an industry leading safety record.
The importance of health and safety is demonstrated through our Health and Safety Policy, our Epidemic Health and Safety Policy, and frequent RoSPA awards year-on-year. For example, in June 2014, Joseph Ash Galvanizing became the only hot dip galvanizing company in the UK to be awarded the RoSPA Gold Award, recognising the company’s health and safety standard, performance and systems. We were awarded the RoSPA Gold Award for five consecutive years from 2014 onwards, and awarded another one for 2022.
We also have the ISO 45001 accreditation for Occupational Health & Safety Management Systems.
