At David Flynn Limited we consider safety, health and environmental performance to be of prime importance to our business and we are totally committed to continual improvement in these areas.

Throughout the company we have a consistent framework for the management of safety, health and environmental issues to help us achieve the high standards we expect.

We measure our performance through audit procedures and safety, health and environmental indicators including accident and incident statistics, performance against annual objectives and training achievement. Measurement helps us identify new avenues for continual improvement.
