A culture of Safety
Delivering a culture of safety throughout the company is of primary importance to Ormandy Rycroft. A fact confirmed with an accident record that is one of the lowest in the industry.
We achieve this impressive record through a combination of rigorous health and safety procedures, ongoing training, optimum in-house control and vigilance, enabling us to take preventative action early should there be a change in legislation or client contract requirements.
Risks could include working at height on larger vessels, unusual materials used in production and the moving of heavy metals and vessels throughout the factory, to name but a few. We address these through standardised working practices for all assembly and processes, detailed risk assessments by ensuring staff training records are up to date and monitored for refresher programmes where required, such as forklift training.
We are continually looking for active steps to improve our working environment and committed to the well-being of all our staff and visitors at our own facility here in Bradford and on our client’s premises when conducting commissioning, servicing, and maintenance requests.
Holding both ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 shows Ormandy’s ongoing commitment to Quality, Safety and Environmental consciousness in workmanship during our many processes and vessel manufacturing, using ethically verified purchasing policies and sustainable products where possible.

We equip all employees with the latest PPE to protect against health and safety risks when carrying out their day-to-day job requirements. This includes appropriate clothing to ensure their visibility and protection in our factory facility.
All substances used within the business are subject to a COSHH assessment and subsequent staff training to ensure we put the correct measures in place to prevent or reduce workers’ exposure.
Since the onset of COVID-19, our priority has been the safety and well-being of all our staff. In line with government guidance, we have carried out COVID-19 risk assessments and wherever possible have helped people to work from home. Where this is not possible, we have taken reasonable steps to maintain social distancing and have cleaning, handwashing, and hygiene procedures in place across the site.
We regularly review our policies which are updated as necessary.
