At Selwood we value our reputation for going above and beyond health and safety requirements. For us, this comes as standard – but it’s always a source of pride when this is recognised by our customers. 

We are proud to supply plant and pump to G: Works who is a contractor of Kier. G: Works recently received a routine SHE (Safety, Health and Environmental) audit from a Kier advisor and a senior contract manager at its site at St Sidwell’s Point, Exeter. 

During the inspection, the inspectors spoke to John Gearing, a driver for Selwood’s Saltash branch, who was pleased to talk about our driver induction process and to demonstrate the many safety features of our fleet of flatbed lorries. 

This resulted in very positive feedback on site, particularly about enhanced safety features such as telescopic access steps, a powered walkway system and multiple alert systems in the vehicle. 

Gavin Coleman, project manager for G: Works, fed back to Simon Rose, Managing Director for Selwood plant hire: “We are used to the high standard of these lorries from Selwood, but it was a pleasure to demonstrate them to Kier. John was very helpful and positive and demonstrated the high standards that both Selwood and G: Works strive to reach.” 

Selwood is committed to Quality, Health, Safety and Environment and one of the few companies in the UK to hold recognised standards in all of these areas. Find out more about our accreditations and memberships here.
