Health and Safety
Rotherley Construction aims to foster a safe and secure working environment
for its employees through the provision of education, promotion, implementation
and training of its employees in Health and Safety procedures. Our concern for
safety extends to our associate suppliers and other vendors and of course, our
clients. Since inception Rotherley Constructions Inc. has not experienced any
serious injury or loss of life on construction sites.
In accordance with Section 103 of the Barbados Health & Safety at Work Act,
Rotherley Construction Inc. has a functioning safety committee comprising of a
Health & Safety Officer, a Company Director, one Construction foreman and union
delegates from the work sites.
Our dedication to safety has been lauded by the government as well as the trade
unions in Barbados and our safety officers have been used extensively to promote
our health and safety approach to the wider community.
It is the responsibility of both the company and the employees to maintain this
environment daily so that our projects are free of accidents and so there are
scripted, detailed and clear guidelines for the various areas of construction
including scaffolding & working at heights, trenching & shoring, site layout &
general Housekeeping, maintenance and use of equipment on site.
In keeping with the company's focus on maintaining high standards of health and
safety practices, employees are exposed to formal First Aid training. This
training is carried out in conjunction with the Heart & Stroke Foundation of
In so doing the company not only complies with the Health and Safety legislation
of Barbados but provides vital training and education for employees in order to
reduce the risk of injury on construction sites and in emergency situations.
