Health & safety is always the primary consideration in the execution of projects at Harland & Wolff.

Health & safety is the first thing we discuss at every board meeting and this focus transcends right through to each and every employee, supported by dedicated safety officers who advise on best practices.


A proactive campaign of health & safety awareness has been driven by the very nature of the company’s line of business and has maintained its excellent track record for incident statistics. Helped by continuous application of our Health and Safety Management System (SMS), certified according to ISO 45001.


In addition to our third party certification audits, we perform systematic internal audits to keep the system relevant, the staff motivated and maintain a high standard of compliance.

Each Project has a dedicated HSE Manager and a specific health and safety plan whereby every employee personally commits to safe working practice and supports the critical safety objectives.

We continually improve our processes and develop the management system based on our performance and experience.



Our yard’s health and safety is led by Andrew Beattie, HSE Manager (Belfast).
