Ipsum Utilities

Health, Safety & the environment
The courage to challenge and the respect to listen
At Ipsum, there is nothing more important than the health and safety of employees, contractors and third parties affected by our work. Effective health and safety actively contribute to our success and we look to communicate this message at every opportunity.
Through everyone participating, contributing, recognising and controlling risk, we will ensure everyone returns home safe at the end of each working day. We believe that by striving to meet and surpass the requirements of relevant legislation and standards, we can avoid people getting hurt and create an environment where work improves health and wellbeing.

We are determined that our workforce has the courage to challenge and the respect to listen. We report, and learn from, incidents and encourage consultation and participation to innovate and continually improve. We have an integrated approach to health, safety, environment and quality. This complies with the internationally recognised standards, ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO45001.
Our ISO45001 certified safety management system ensures we have policies, guidance and support available to everyone working on our behalf. We are audited under the Achilles UVDB Verify system, so our clients can benchmark our performance. To ensure we can compete as an accredited Independent Connection Provider (ICP), we are assessed under the Lloyd’s Register National Electricity Registration Scheme (NERS).

We complete work under the Construction Design and Management Regulations 2015 (CDM), at both Principal Designer and Principal Contractor level. All health and safety policies and procedures are available, upon request, to relevant parties.
