The safety, health and wellbeing of all who may be affected by our operations and activities is our top priority. We provide all our employees with safe plant and safe systems of work; sufficient information, instruction, training and supervision; a safe working environment; and adequate facilities and arrangements for their welfare at work. All working activities are covered by the Health and Safety at Work (Jersey) Law 1989.

All employees working on Rok building sites carry a Jersey Safety Awareness Test (JSAT) card, which they received after successfully completing the online test. JSAT can assist employers in complying with the general duties placed on them under Articles 3 and 5 of the Health and Safety at Work (Jersey) Law 1989 and the Health and Safety (Management in Construction) (Jersey) Regulations 2016.

Rok is Contractors Health & Safety Assessment Scheme (CHAS) accredited, having achieved the scheme’s standards for health and safety and risk management.

Rok is leading the construction industry in its efforts to equate the importance of mental health and wellbeing with that of physical health and safety via its SafeMinds initiative, working in tandem with education and industry. [Launching in January 2023]
