Health and Safety Management System

HS Diversity Pic2.jpgCrossrail Limited operates a health and safety management system which is certificated to BS OHSAS 18001:2007.

The Crossrail health and safety management system sets out the arrangements for managing the health and safety risks to Crossrail Limited’s employees as well as establishing minimum standards for its contractors.  The contractors minimum standards are set out in the Health and Safety Standard for Contractor and Industry Partners.

In addition to this standard Crossrail and its industry partners initially all signed a Health, Safety and Environment Agreement setting out key leadership behaviours that would be demonstrated by signatories. Contractors too initially signed the agreement to demonstrate their commitment to HSE. Although Health & Safety and Environment are now treated separately, the underlying principles of the HSE agreement remain.

As a subsidiary of TfL Crossrail Limited has adopted the TfL Health, Safety and Environment policy as well as developing an enhanced  Crossrail Health and Safety Policy.

Health and wellbeing is also a key focus for Crossrail and this message has been delivered to the contractor community by setting occupational health and wellbeing minimal requirements based on the Crossrail Occupational Health Standard.
