Health & Safety at CarmichaelUK

The health and safety of our contractors is a top priority for the Directors of CarmichaelUK.  We want to make sure that all of our contractors work in an environment where safety is absolutely the main concern.

We use independent and in-house health and safety consultants to audit our client’s sites on a regular basis to satisfy ourselves that the site is safe for our contractors to carry out their duties.

We carry out robust compliance checks on all of our contractors to ensure that they are competent to work on site and that all of their safety-critical certifications are valid.


At CarmichaelUK we offer a number of schemes for our contractors to anonymously and confidentially report any concerns that they may have whilst on site.

CAUTION is just for CarmichaelUK staff and contractors.  It keeps contractors up to date with live feeds from the HSE as well as providing a confidential platform for reporting concerns or near misses.  We will never divulge the source of any concern and we will always investigate any concern that is reported and take action where appropriate.

CIRAS is a not for profit organisation which provides a confidential reporting line for contractors to report health and safety concerns or incidents knowing that their identity will not be shared.  CarmichaelUK is a member of CIRAS which covers health and safety matters related to any kind of industry involved in transport including rail, light rail, underground and road.  Our contractors can use CIRAS to report any concerns they have.

We have retained health & safety advisors who regularly audit our clients’ sites on our behalf. They provide a report and advice on any areas where improvements could be made so that we can liaise with clients where appropriate.  

We also occasionally undertake random D&A tests to audit compliance with our health & safety policy.
