with safety in mind
Keeping people & the environment safe
At Shannonside Civil Engineering Ltd, we have always put the health and safety of our people and everyone who works alongside us at the centre of our approach, striving to ensure that the way you turn up for work is the same way you return home to your loved ones.
We act responsibly by working safely, with consideration for all those affected by our operations and everything we do. We approach opportunities and problems with a proactive attitude that says "We can do something about this".
Shannonside’s aim is to achieve first class performance in quality, health, safety and the environment by reducing and managing risks, eliminating potential injuries, preventing work related ill-health and minimising the effect of our activities on the environment.
