In 2017 five of our site managers were commended or highly commended by the NHBC Health and Safety awards, which provide rigorous independent assessment of our sites and ultimately recognise excellence on site.
Our ever popular 'Buster' and 'Buddy' mascots visit primary schools near to our sites, communicating about the dangers of construction sites. A serious message delivered in a fun way. We also support Working Well Together Groups in communities where we build, sharing health and safety knowledge, best practice and skills with a variety of local organisations and businesses.
We are an active member of the Home Builder Federation's health and safety forum, promoting continual improvements in health & safety practices and performance within the construction industry.
Redrow is providing health screening to all employees and sub-contractors working on our sites, as part of our wellbeing approach. A Health Kiosk is set up on site which provides people with the ability to take health and lifestyle checks securely and in confidence.
We are becoming corporate partners in the Considerate Constructors Scheme and are committed to signing up all of our construction sites to be independently assessed as part of the programme. As a partner company we have signed up to demonstrating that our assessment performance is at least one point above industry average. Redrow’s current performance average is 37 which compares to the industry average of 35.
Lyon Square, recently recorded a score of 44 out of 50. The site performed strongly in all five areas scored: appearance, community, environment, safety and workforce. Regular updates to the community and a CSR plan helped score highly in the community section.
Redrow runs and supports a great number of local community projects. Redrow volunteers worked with Keep Wales Tidy on a community project to clean up the River Taff. Redrow financially supports 'Woodford Community' fund in Cheshire which helps with projects such as regeneration of a local park and play equipment. Redrow helped North East Wales Wildlife Trust in planting 1000 trees which will form a local wildlife corridor.
