Health and Safety
At Architen Landrell, our health and safety policy forms the heart of our operations and is integral in all activities carried out. We believe it is our responsibility to ensure the safety, health and welfare at work of all our employees and to prevent all unnecessary risks to the safety or health of others. Our office and site based Health and Safety Supervisors are present throughout our involvement in a project and ensure that our team, and any associated companies, maintain the highest of standards.
Our formal Health and Safety Policy outlines the aims of the company, and lists the steps we will take to ensure that those goals are met. We constantly revise and update the health and safety aims of the company to ensure that we promote the highest quality of safety standards.
As a core element of our business, Architen Landrell aims to:
- Promote good health and safety behaviour at all times
- Ensure risk assessments are carried out on all activities by informed staff
- Train our staff in the essential principles of working safely and allow them to make informed choices about the health and safety issues within the work place
- Ensure our trained and fully competent staff actively contribute to the safe planning and execution of their work
- To establish good channels of communication to encourage all members of staff to get involved in developing health and safety practices
As a company, we place particular importance on the provision of information, instruction, training and supervision. All our site staff are CSCS and the company is Safe Contractor certified, and extra health and safety training is given to those who take part in rope access installations. We have strict accident reporting procedures and designated staff are trained in first aid and emergency response.
All employees have a duty to take reasonable care of their own health and safety, as well as that of others, and to co-operate fully in all discussions and actions necessary to provide such care. Architen Landrell believes in educating its employees in safe practices and all staff are inducted and retrained regularly.

Architen Landrell work hard to minimise the environmental impact of the work we carry out. Our environmental policy is below:
Architen Landrell is an organisation with an international reputation at the forefront of tensile architecture innovation. We specialise in employing the principles of structural membrane design to create landmark buildings and iconic features that provide insightful, creative and cost-effective solutions to traditional construction and fit-out design briefs.
Architen Landrell recognises that concern for the environment should be an integral and fundamental part of its business operations. As a result it is our aim to achieve environmental excellence through the implementation of an Environmental Management System that meets the requirements of the Green Dragon Environmental Standard™ and ISO 14001:2004.
In particular we will:
- Continually improve our environmental performance and prevention of pollution, with an ISO14001 accredited management system.
- Ensure compliance with all relevant local, national and international legislation and regulations while supporting all governmental polices for sustainable development.
- Monitor progress through objectives and targets to identify strengths and weaknesses in order to highlight actions required to prevent deficiencies.
- Train all staff to enhance their environmental awareness. Encourage sub contractors and suppliers to adhere to our environmental standards.
- Communicate our environmental policy to all interested internal and external parties.
We will seek to reduce our environmental impacts and improve sustainability through:
- The minimisation of material and energy usage in all operations on and off site.
- The safe disposal or destruction of waste where reuse or recycling is not possible or economically viable.
- Reducing the greenhouse gas emissions created as a result of both our direct and indirect activities.
- The provision of appropriate resources and the necessary training for staff, to ensure that they are able to fulfil the commitment given in this policy.
This policy will be reviewed at least annually and will form the basis of all future environmental improvements.
