Health, Safety & WELLBEING

At Glencar, health, safety and wellbeing considerations are prioritised as a cultural driver as well as a legal responsibility.

Health & Safety

Our project planning process and operational systems prioritise the provision of a safe working environment for our staff and subcontractors.

Careful planning of site logistics and project programmes at pre-contract stage is essential and customer communication is high on the agenda from the earliest stages in order to ensure a safe and high quality delivery.


H&S health audits are carried out on a weekly basis by site supervisors in addition to daily checks, with results shared as part of a weekly project update to the project team and client.

Monthly H&S meetings provide an opportunity for the site team and subcontractors to share any areas of concern and implement proactive measures to ensure optimum safety standards are maintained.


All of our sites are registered with the Considerate Constructors Scheme under which they are independently audited against several key criteria which include safety and the creation of a pleasant working environment.

Our ongoing commitment to the highest standards of health and safety is evidenced by a 2020 AIFR of 0.53.


Workplace health and mental wellbeing are high on the agenda at Glencar and we work hard to foster a supportive culture and give all colleagues the tools and training that they need in order to thrive.

We have trained several Mental Health First Aiders and mental health support is available as part of our benefits package. All team members can also access an individual healthcheck, nutrition consultation, personalised fitness programme, expert health case management and private healthcare.


We work in a sustainable manner, using our influence with our supply chains and indeed our customers to make informed decisions.


Glencar is active in the local communities in which it operates and we seek to create social value and opportunities wherever we can.


Glencar is committed to the pursuit of excellence in all areas of its operations.
