Health & Safety – a core value at Terradrive

Terradrive_Piling_Safe_T_CertFor the second year in a row, Terradrive Piling & Foundations Ltd. has successfully achieved Safe-T-Cert accreditation.

Following on from the success of being the first Irish piling company to achieve Safe-T-Cert accreditation, Terradrive has increased its rating from level E to level D certification due to improvements in core ares of their Health & Safety Management Systems.

“Independent verification of our Health & Safety Management System is very important to Terradrive.”, explains Operations Director Seamus Byrne,”Third party assessment and review is critical to developing our system and leads to an open and transparent appraisal of our efforts.”

According to Managing Director Eddie Horkan, “The Safe-T-Cert validates our system and gives us the confidence to develop and improve our system and procedures, knowing that we are on the right track.”

Safe-T-Cert is widely recognised throughout the construction industry and is supported by the Construction Industry Federation and consequently by Ireland’s leading contractors. The scheme scrutinises a company’s Health & Safety Management System and uses ‘best practice’ national and international guidelines in assessing the competence of a company’s Health & Safety Management System.

Marie Buturla, Customer Relationship Executive at Terradrive, feels that Safe-T-Cert is pivotal in building trust with customers; “Safe-T-Cert is an immidiately recognisable standard, which allows our customers, and their clients, to have confidence in us as a responsible and competent contractor. Because we have gained Safe-T-Cert accreditation, our customers can trust us on their sites.”

The goal for Terradrive now is to devvelop and improve their systems to allow for a further increase in rating next year.
