The Phelan H&S team
All health and safety guidance is provided by our in-house health and safety team.

Over the years, Phelan Construction has invested in a number of H&S initiatives to protect and promote the well-being of our staff.
As Phelan’s accident and incident statistics show, Phelan effectively monitors, manages and controls health and safety on all sites. We have not received any HSE Prohibition notices in the past 10 years and are registered members of various health and safety bodies.

The health and wellbeing of our site teams is paramount. As such, Phelan Construction has invested in periodical visits to each of our construction sites by the ELAS medical bus. While on site, a trained medical professional confidentially assesses the health of our on-site team against set criterion and provides them with any medical support as required.
Mental Health Matters
Suicide kills more construction workers than falls. In fact, male site workers in construction are three times more likely to commit suicide than the average UK male. We are committed to changing this status quo, which is why we proudly promote our Mental Health Matters signs and posters across all sites. We have five mental health first aiders and are working to increase this number. We run charity events during Mental Health Awareness Week and further encourage our site-staff to download a mental health app to measure their mood. This is a long-term campaign for positive change.
