Health & Safety

General statement for Health & Safety

This is the general statement for the Health and Safety Policy for Compass Construction Ltd and shall be implemented in all our undertakings. In all of our activities and operations we will work with our staff, its representatives and our contractors and suppliers to:

  1. Comply fully with all legal requirements and meet or exceed health and safety standards.
  2. Provide a secure working environment by protecting ourselves, our assets and our operations against risk of injury, loss or damage and thereby protecting our business.
  3. Ensure that all our employees, contractors and others are well informed, trained, engaged and committed to the health and safety improvement process. We recognise that safe operations depend not only on technically sound plant and equipment but also on competent people and an active Health & Safety culture and that no activity is so important that it cannot be done safely.
  4. Regularly provide assurance that the health and safety processes in place are working effectively. While all employees and contractors are responsible for health and safety performance, line management is accountable for understanding and managing health and safety risks.
  5. Fully participate in hazard identification, risk assessment and the open and transparent reporting of health and safety results.
  6. Maintain public confidence in the integrity of our operations. We will regularly consult experts outside of the business to improve our understanding of external and internal health and safety issues associated with our operations.
  7. Manage all companies that are employed by Compass Construction and ensure they comply with our health and safety standards, as well as assuring ourselves that they operate to systems compatible with those of Compass Construction and will use contractors that operate recognised health and safety procedures.

The Compass Construction policy statement will be subject to regular reviews and amendments as often as considered necessary, but no less than every 12 months.



From the first spade in the ground to the last touch of paint work, Compass were with us all the way.

West Byfleet

When embarking on building our own home journey we knew we needed a professional and highly regarded main contractor.

St Anns

We heard about Compass Construction as they had recently completed a couple of new build houses in our road. They looked good and we managed to take a look round them so we knew the high quality Compass produced. They were also recommended to us by a neighbour as a good company to work with.

The Hus

We chose Compass out of four bidders to build our new contemporary home. The quotes were similar but we chose them because we could tell we would get on well with Steve and Richard, the owners.

King Georges Cottage

They are excellent with a very professional but easy to get on with attitude and an eye for detail and quality. We did an almost full knockdown then rebuild of a brick and stone house in the heart of the Surrey Hills and they did a beautiful job; on time, on budget and not one argument or problem that was not immediately sorted.
