HEALTH & SAFETY
IPM facilities are committed to the ongoing improvement of our Health and Safety within the organisation. This has enabled us to secure numerous accreditations including ES BN ISO 45001:2018, Safe Contractor SSIP, Constructionline Gold, and Avetta to name just a few.
We constantly review our systems to ensure all our activities are carried out with as safe and sustainable an approach as possible. We also believe it’s important to listen to our workforce and incorporate their initiatives to improve our health and safety.
IProtectU is a secure and integrated health and safety software. This was introduced to the company last year and it was a welcome improvement. It’s readily accessible for employees and sub-contractors via the use of mobile phones.
The software can be used for all accident and near-miss reporting, conducting and reviewing Risk Assessments, Training, ToolBox Talk, and DSE assessment are all completed on the IProtectU software.

I’ve been actively involved in Health and Safety for over five years, and I have been at IPM facilities for the past 8 months. Here at IPM Facilities, we are very proactive in health and safety providing information, training, and adequate supervision to keep our guys on the ground as safe as possible. No two days are the same, I’m actively involved in health and safety spot checks to make sure employees and subcontractors are working as safely as possible so they can return to their families at the end of the working day. All our Health and safety documents including RAMS and Jobs specific is done through IProtectU. Positive changes to our practices are also agreed upon within staff consultation meetings – meaning we’re all united in our ongoing health and safety focus.
