Committed to keeping our employees and clients safe

ICR has robust systems and processes in place and we strive to support our employees to take the lead when it comes to HSSEQ. Our group HSSEQ policies, combined with our ‘9 Steps to Safety’ provide us with common standards so we can continue to strengthen and improve our performance and culture to deliver safety excellence.


9 Steps to Safety

The first step in the journey to zero harm begins with us, with each of us consciously recognising our personal responsibility for safety. Apply the 3 C’s of Commitment, Care and Courage.
During the preparation and planning stages of any activity identify all hazards, assess and control the risk using the ICR Risk Management Tools. Don’t miss a TRIC!
To ensure that we reach the workplace or service delivery location safely, we must follow road rules and speed limits, wear seatbelts, do not use mobile devices, and never drive under the influence of alcohol, drugs, or when tired.
If possible, avoid manual handling. Where it is unavoidable, always assess the using T.I.L.E. (Task, Individual, Load, Environment) methodology. Utilise safe handling methods.
Always follow safe lifting practices; plan the lift and conduct or review the risk assessment. Before use, inspect all lifting equipment and never exceed the Safe Working Load. Never position yourself in the line of fire of loads being lifted or transported.
Always refer to the SDS or COSHH assessment. Store chemicals in a safe place when not in use, wear the correct PPE for the chemical being used and make sure you know what to do in the event of a spill.
Ensure work equipment is suitable and fit for purpose. Inspect before use, report damage, and quarantine tools if defective. Operate safely by trained personnel. Always use guards.
When working with pressurised equipment or conducting pressure testing, ensure equipment is inspected and certified safe. Train and ensure competency of personnel. Conduct a risk assessment before proceeding.
Avoid working from height if possible; use alternative means of access. Prevent the risk of a fall – use a fixed platform with hand rails. Minimise consequences of a potential fall – use fall arrest equipment and have a rescue plan in place.
