Our management and employees demonstrate this commitment through their behaviour. Brothers aim to comply with external regulations and operate ethically and responsibly in all situations.

SHEQ policies and procedures are the responsibility of the Director and are implemented by Brothers’ management with support of the SHEQ functions. The SHEQ department work within the business to ensure that the company has a deliverable policy, manages risk professionally and drives local and regional best practice.
The company has well-established programmes to drive improvement in SHEQ performance, and these include programmes to improve our safety systems and procedures and ensure the behaviours of all our employees are 100% safety focussed.
