Health & Safety at IRIS

As a company, our aim is to responsibly design, build and maintain building infrastructure safely.

Our strategic objective is to deliver long-term, profitable growth and increased stakeholder value. We do this by ensuring we are a business that clients choose to work with, and as such, we ensure high levels of focus on our safety systems and culture to improve our performance.

IRIS has always been passionate about safety. Our teams operate in highly demanding environments in the industrial, manufacturing and research and development sectors, and it is vital that they are always safe when working.

Responsibility for Health & Safety extends throughout all levels within the organisation, starting with the main board of Directors, where ultimate responsibility rests. As such, the Directors and Management of IRIS focus on ensuring the processes and resources are made available to maintain and encourage a safe and healthy working environment for ourselves and others.

Our Health & Safety Teams support operational management to deliver a comprehensive and thorough approach to induction and training for all employees through tailored development programmes in-line with an individual’s job description.

Safety First - In Everything We Do

By promoting a Safety-First culture, we ensure a high level of commitment and focus in providing a safe working environment, where the health and wellbeing of our people, suppliers and customers is both protected and actively promoted.

Quality Management Systems

We have taken an integrated approach to management systems, recognising the need to consider Health, Safety, Environmental and Quality issues in all aspects of service delivery.

By operating a formal management system, we are able to evaluate the effectiveness of policies, standards and systems to ensure they are effective.

Compliance Assurance

Evidence of compliance to the required regulatory standards is operated through systematic checks and record keeping and audit.


We have a proven safety record on customer sites and have been active in the development of Risk Assessments, Method Statements and managing a Permit to Work System within the areas of our control.

We maintain the highest standards of corporate responsibility and commit time to community programmes in support of the local environment we operate in.

Our Health & Safety Vision

We believe that safety is a core value of everyone in IRIS.

We make sure that, in everything we do, we think about ourselves, our colleagues and our customers, so that we can all return home safely each and every time.
