J A Burke believe we have a duty to safeguard the health and safety of all our staff and site visitors.

We see this as an ongoing responsibility with initiatives that do not just meet legal requirements, but put us at the forefront in this field.

We were one of the first companies in the country to introduce universal Occupational Health provision. This is run in partnership with nurse-led occupational health provider Building Health.

Education and communication are essential in ensuring we create an environment and procedures that are safe for all and risk management plays a crucial role in every project.

Our ratio of foremen to operatives always exceeds the basic legal requirement and we have more Phase Three tested staff than many other companies in our sector.

We ensure all operatives are FaceFit tested and furthermore are re-tested on half face Press to Check masks following feedback from site operatives and managers. To facilitate this expanded testing a number of employees were trained as Qualitative Face Fit Testers and accredited by Fit 2Fit.

First Aid training is ongoing for both office staff and site operatives. Currently one in four of our workforce has undergone first aid training and in addition we have introduced a Mental Health Awareness Training Programme where we aim to have one in ten employees fully trained by end 2019.
