Our approach to health, safety and wellbeing
We have a clear and robust approach to health, safety and wellbeing, striving to create an industry leading capability. We adopt an integrated and inclusive approach that is considered at every stage: acquisition, development, leasing and management. The principles of providing safe and healthy buildings and working practices are achieved by fostering relationships with our internal and external stakeholders, the design of our buildings and the use of appropriate materials, whilst providing secure maintenance operations. This approach should ensure our occupiers, employees and visitors are safe, healthy and productive.
Our integrated and inclusive approach
We have an excellent health and safety record and have made further progress over the last year. We aim to achieve an industry leading capability across our diverse portfolio, which brings with it a wide range of aspects, including mental and physical health and wellbeing. In 2019 we recruited a new Head of Health and Safety, who will be developing the team further to deliver our strategy and support our integrated and inclusive approach. This approach covers the three operational areas of the business and ensures we cover, lead and manage the breadth of our obligations and responsibilities and instil a best practice approach.
Group – ensuring the health, safety and wellbeing of our employees and providing the right environment for them to thrive
Managed Portfolio – provide safe, healthy and secure environments for those who work, visit, live and relax across our managed portfolio
