When it comes to the safety of our clients and the welfare of our workforce, we don’t cut corners. With multiple stakeholders and sub-contractors on site every day, failure to meet industry standards is not an option. Kim Clark, our dedicated health and safety advisor brings years of experience to Vision Construct, underpinned by his longstanding membership of the International Institute of Risk & Safety Management and the British Safety Council.
From demolition through to completion, a typical Vision Construct project encounters every type of risk you can think of. I’m proud of our track record in safeguarding each one.- Kim Clark, Health & Safety Advisor
