Trifast remains committed to ensuring the health, safety and welfare of all of its employees and those involved in sub-contract activities. The Health and Safety Management System ensures that the business assesses the risks to its employees and third party contractors, and aims to remove or reduce those risks as appropriate — this is aided by the ongoing use of our non-conformance and risk assessment action tracking systems. These systems provide trending information, which allows the Company to target specific areas to ensure that risk is kept to a minimum.

The management teams are supported by the health, safety and environmental manager, divisional health, safety and environmental representatives, first aiders, fire wardens, manual handling instructors and fork lift truck instructors.

Trifast remains a member of the British Safety Council, and offers courses from their system to all employees via the core HR system. These courses range from lower level basic understanding to internationally recognised qualifications.

TR has recently become a member of the Activ-Comply system. This system allows us visibility of all applicable legislation and access to an audit tracking system to ensure that the business remains compliant with all current, new and up-coming legal requirements. This system is used to form our business processes, which are then rolled out throughout our Business Management System.

Each division of TR has a legal compliance audit and a legal compliance management review once a year, and representatives attend an annual meeting at TR Head Office to promote and discuss continuous improvement initiatives.

Trifast eagerly awaits the release of ISO45001 (Health and Safety Management Systems), which is expected before the end of 2016. It is the intention of the Company to gain accreditation to this standard as soon as practicable following its release. It is our understanding that this standard will allow the business to further align its management system with that of ISO9001 and ISO14001.
