From our Board of Directors, through our factory, to installation teams on site, Portakabin is dedicated to a consistent and proactive approach to safety.

Health, safety and welfare is central to everything

The health, safety and welfare of anyone who interfaces with our activities is central to everything we do – employees, contractors, subcontractors, clients, visitors and your business.

  1. Zero Harm Vision

    Portakabin has one simple vision for Health, Safety and the Environment: Zero Harm.

    We treat legal and industry standards as a minimum through our commitment to, and compliance with, all relevant Health, Safety and Environmental legislation and best practice.

  2. Teamwork

    Through Teamwork we engage our employees, suppliers and customers to ensure that we work together in partnership to deliver products, services and systems of work that embrace Zero Harm at their core.

  3. Innovation

    Through Innovation we inspire continual improvement and set high expectations for sustainable health, safety and environmental performance.

  4. Integrity

    Through Integrity we encourage open reporting and idea sharing and then keep our promises to care for everyone who works with and alongside us.

  5. Commitment

    Our Commitment to Health, Safety and the Environment is a fundamental and integral part of how we manage our business.

  6. Uncompromising site safety

    You can be confident of our site safety standards knowing that our people and processes have been independently accredited:

    • ISO 45001 – recognising that our buildings are safe to use
    • CHAS (Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme) – rigorous assessment of our health and safety policies, systems and procedures
    • CSCS cards – carried by our on-site workforce to show that they are fully qualified for their roles.
  7. Supporting the environment

    Our drive to operate responsibly places a high degree of importance on environmental management. We do everything we can to minimise waste and emissions from our production processes and this has been independently recognised.

  8. ISO 14001 accreditation

    ISO 14001 accreditation – verifies the high standards of our environmental management and our commitment to ongoing environmental responsibility.

  9. Zero waste gold award

    We received the highest accolade at the Zero Waste Awards in recognition of our achievements in sustainable waste management. At the time, this was only the 5th time the Gold Award had been presented since the awards began.

  10. Regulatory compliance

    The Portakabin Executive Management Team is responsible for ensuring that adequate information, instructions and supervision are made available to every employee to ensure compliance with both the requirements and the spirit of the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and all regulations and approved codes of practice made under this Act.

The Portakabin team had a fantastic attitude towards safety in this challenging location. Our site was well organised and the on-time delivery of the building enabled us to move tenants in and continue with the transformation programme almost immediately.
