Health and Safety | Como

Health and Safety

Como's health and safety programme, "Safety First, Second Nature," demonstrates our commitment to ensuring the wellbeing of every person affected by our work. Our rigorous and future-focused approach goes beyond reducing accidents to nurture the systemic behavioural changes required to create and uphold a culture of safety and wellness on site.

Most organisations like ours boast health and safety systems. The difference between Como and our competitors is the strategy we have in place to support our approach. For us, it's about continuous improvement: We won't rest until we are the safest in our industry.
We aim to:

• Develop policy to meet corporate client and location expectations
• Enhance the skills of our staff and supplier workforce
• Embed safe values and behaviours through cultural change
• Enhance standards and performance through measurement
• Improve collaborative working and effective communications 

Behavioural change

Central to our approach to health and safety is nurturing safe behaviour that extends beyond the life of a project. We strive to effect long-term change among our employees, empowering them to become ambassadors of wellbeing from project to project and in all aspects of their lives. 


Critical to our success is regular and ongoing training. We work with our people and supply chain to ensure they have the tools they need to manage, enforce and perpetuate a positive health and safety environment. 


We recognise that no health and safety approach is successful unless it comes from leadership. Our dedicated health and safety experts work on an individual and group basis with our leaders to support and enable them to deliver effective health and safety on site.
