FBS Construction’s forward thinking approach to health and safety stands out because it is at the forefront of the company’s culture. We incorporate collaborative teamwork and innovation, and we’re driven by the belief that all have a right to earn a living and return home safe after work.

On all our projects we carry out our own health and safety audits, both in house with our Nebosh-trained safety advisor and using trusted external consultants to ensure that the working environment is monitored and we are challenged to ensure all those at risk are protected.
