JP Corry strives to maintain high standards of health and safety across each and every site.
We are committed to exceptional levels of performance in safeguarding our employees, the public and the environment by striving for zero employee injuries and illnesses in the workplace, while operating and delivering our work responsibly and sustainably. As critical factors contributing towards business performance, we aim to prevent all workplace accidents and illnesses by taking a proactive approach at all our locations. This includes conducting our business in compliance with applicable health and safety laws and regulations, company standards, policies, and best practices.
Whether based in an office location, branch, or a field sales role, we all play a vital role in ensuring our workplace environment and culture is safe and healthy.
Everyone from the senior management team through to our individual branches have adopted a culture of internal reporting on health and safety. "Near Miss” events are regularly targeted and measured, and meetings held involving staff from different departments where issues or concerns can be raised.
The strong focus on health and safety led to our Springfield Road branch being awarded the Saint-Gobain Diamond Award in 2015- a prestigious accolade awarded to Saint Gobain businesses for outstanding health and safety practices.
We continue to roll out our behavioural safety/safety culture approach across the business. We have always committed to developing, implementing, and improving safe systems of work, and this continued during 2020 with particular emphasis on re-engineering working processes in all our branches in response to COVID-19.
The Health, Safety and Wellbeing of our employees is at the heart of everything we do, nothing is more important. WORK SAFE- HOME SAFE

It has never been more important to prioritise the mental health for everyone
who works in our business given the fast, ever changing pace of the world around us. In 2022, JP Corry formed a partnership with SixMHS, a 24/7 confidential service that allows every member of staff to avail of mental health support and therapy if they require it.
Defibrillators can be the difference between life and death. Investing in the welfare of our colleagues and visitors to our sites, the business has installed a defibrillator in every branch.
