Health & Safety

Our Health and Safety Mission Statement

The Sunville Rail Health & Safety management system defines how the company provides a healthy and safe work environment. All employees share the company's genuine commitment to Health and Safety supported by a firm, fair and consistent enforcement policy.   

The company provides the necessary training and resources, helping to reduce or eliminate workplace hazards and injury to as low a level as is reasonably practicable.   

We believe that standards of safety, health and welfare must be maintained at the highest possible levels, resulting in a workplace that is a safe and happy environment.   

John Murphy, H.S.Q.E Manager


We care about the health of all of our employees and are committed to protecting them from occupational health hazards. We also encourage them to look after their own general health.

A workforce that is healthy, fit and alert is more likely to stay safe and take less time off from work. This in turn helps us deliver a high standard service, on time, within budget and to customer requirements.


The most important aspect of Sunville Rail's work is ensuring the health & safety of all of those affected by its activities - employees, clients, the public and anyone else on or about the location of our work sites. Sunville Rail recognises that effective management of health & safety is an integral part of our business and that co-operation and ownership at all levels is vital in achieving the Health & Safety aims and objectives for which we strive.

We have developed policies and procedures designed to reflect our compliance with legislation, Railway Group & Network Rail Company Standards.
