Our Guiding Principles

Quality


We believe that our tradition for quality workmanship, combined with our commitment to innovation and continuous improvement, gives us a sound platform for future progress.



Care


As individuals, we take full responsibility for our own performances and decisions. We take prompt action in all situations and a proactive approach to improving the quality of our services as well as the performance and growth of our company.



Commitment


We are committed to meeting any specific needs of our clients or residents in the communities within which we work. We undertake close liaison with our clients and their end-users prior to, throughout the duration of the works and also after the handover of our projects.

Training and
Apprenticeships


Committed to investment in training and development for all of our employees.

We share knowledge and best practices across the company and also with our partners and supply chain.

As an example, the training of our operatives by boiler manufacturers has enabled us to undertake the warranty works ourselves, ensuring a rapid solution and improved service delivery for the end user.

Our commitment to the training and development of all our staff, together with utilising their individual skills and local knowledge, equips Oakray to do the best job possible wherever we operate.

A ‘Training Partner’ with Hertfordshire Regional College and Brentwood College, we also work in partnership with the NIC EIC, providing the latest training in electrical and renewable energy.

Health & Safety


Health and Safety is paramount to Oakray.

We have a dedicated Health, Safety, Environment and Quality department and we are members of the British Safety Council, ROSPA, EXOR, CHAS and Constructionline. 

We are dedicated to providing a high quality of service and client satisfaction through our commitment to a policy of good health and safety practice whilst continuously looking to improve all aspects of occupational health, management and performance of our overall service delivery to our clients and their end-users.

Our Health, Safety, Environment and Quality managers are responsible for ensuring that the company Health and Safety plan is effectively implemented alongside our policies and safe working practices.

All our employees have a legal obligation to take reasonable care of their own health and safety and also for the health and safety of other people who may be affected by their acts or omissions.  All our Directors, Senior Managers and Supervisors undertake IOSH Management Safety training and this is further backed-up by regular in-house training and seminars. In order to ensure that our Health and Safety policies are as rigorous and robust as they can be, we organise for an independent Health and Safety Consultant to carry out an annual audit of our Health and Safety policy and procedures (accredited to ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001) as part of our annual Health and Safety review.

Health and Safety issues are discussed at board level on an on-going basis and included in all meeting agendas with staff and operatives.
