Corporate Social Responsibility

At Corniche we are dedicated to building and committed to building relationships, both with clients and with our staff. We value integrity and corporate social responsibility (CSR) informs all of our decisions. This page outlines our key policies.

Quality Management Statement

In carrying out its business activities Corniche Construction Ltd is committed to the continual improvement of its processes, systems and production. We are also committed to the development of our staff, at all levels, by creating an environment in which each person is motivated towards the goals of meeting or exceeding our clients' expectations.

We have developed and implemented our own management system which benchmarks our performance, that of employees and of the supply chain, to ensure that we match and better the current Best Practice Standards in the industry. In addition, we have developed a system based on competencies for our employees to maintain and develop their knowledge and skills.

By continually improving our administration and construction management processes, we will aim to meet or improve, where appropriate, the requirements of the project specification and adhere to construction programmes and budgets. Our objective will be achieved by employee and supply chain involvement, communication at all levels and our initiative to adapt and generate trust and credibility.

Key to all of our actions will be the quest for complete customer satisfaction.

Equal Opportunities

Corniche Construction Limited is committed to building an organisation that makes full use of the talents, skills, experience and different cultural perspectives available in a multi-ethnic and diverse society. We aim to operate a business where people feel they are respected and valued and can achieve their potential regardless of race, colour, nationality, national or ethnic origins, sexual orientation and general disability or age.

Corniche Construction Limited will follow recommendations made in both the Statutory Codes of Practice of the Commission for Racial Equality and Equal Opportunities Commission and adhere to the Disability Rights Commission Code of Practices in Employment and Occupation in all their employment policies, procedures and practices.

Health and Safety

Corniche Construction Limited is committed to carrying out its duties under section 2(3) of the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and fulfilling its obligations to both employees and the public. It is our aim to achieve a working environment which is free of work related accidents and ill-health and to this end we pursue continuing improvements from year to year.

SR Safety Solutions are our Health and Safety advisors. They provide competent advice as required under Management of Health and Safety Regulations, reviewing our policy and implementing frequent updates in line with legislation changes.

We are a CHAS accredited contractor. CHAS is a non commercial scheme for health and safety pre-qualification in the UK to a nationally recognised and accepted threshold standard. The scheme fully reflects the stage one requirements of assessing competence under CDM 2015.

We are also members of CHSG and undergo an annual review of our policy arrangements.

Environmental Policy

We recognise that our operations have an effect on the local, regional and global environment. We will ensure that all staff are trained in our Environmental Management System and given guidance on its implementation.

As a consequence of this Corniche Construction is committed to continuous improvements in environmental performance and the prevention of pollution.

Child Protection

As part of our policy on child protection Corniche Construction will:

  • Protect young people from harm
  • Manage them as we would all staff with regards to Health and Safety
  • Assess risks to their health, safety and welfare

One to one working in closed or isolated environments is avoided wherever possible. Physical contact is only used when guidance for a specific job task cannot be given without it.

Confidential information given in the workplace which causes concern for a young persons safety and welfare is reported immediately to school or college contacts.

Any employees disqualified from working with children have declared their position as required by the Criminal Justice and Court Service Act.

Modern Slavery

Corniche Construction Ltd recognises and welcomes the Modern Slavery Act 2015. Whilst it requires large organisations to disclose publicly the steps they are taking to prevent modern slavery within their business and supply chains, we recognise that we too, must embrace the Act and take a zero-tolerance approach to exploitation.

We are committed to improving our practices by acting ethically and with integrity to ensure that modern slavery and human trafficking do not exist anywhere within our organisation or is associated with the business in any way.
