Submitted: 27 September, 2013
Since attending the inaugural meeting to gain further information from the Responsibility Deal, we as a company have employed the services of an independant company to carry out well being/health screening checks/medicals of ALL of our staff and employees.
We take great care of our valued employees to ensure they are fit for work in the heavy civil engineering industry within which we operate as a specialist steel piling contractor.
The medicals are very comprehensive and comply with Constructing Better Health in respect of the safety critical workers medical assessments. The service we subscribe to and actively encourage also involves drug and alcohol screening randomly, a 'for cause' service and a chemist on call service. We have found this comprehensive service also complies with our 'link up' approval for activities on the rail.
Once the medicals are conducted, referral can and have been made for our employees to seek further medical attention from their GP.
We, are Kim Barker Construction, pledge to continue improve our well being checks/medical assessments of our workforce in order to keep them healthy both at work and during leisure time.
We actively encourage our employees to attend 'workshops' on health checks etc when promotions are in place at various sites around the country where we are working.
