Capco is a Client Partner of the Considerate Constructors Scheme (the “Scheme”), reflecting our commitment to ensuring that our contractors provide the highest standards of health and safety on our construction projects. As a Client Partner, Capco encourages the contractors we engage to be registered with the Scheme. We expect compliance with all aspects of the Scheme’s Code on our registered sites.
Capco’s Group-wide business continuity and major incident response plans continue to be tested and refreshed as appropriate. Scenario based desk top exercises are held in relation to each asset to familiarise the major incident response teams with the enhanced plans. In addition, health & safety is considered as part of due-diligence on the commencement of new operations or projects.
No work-related employee fatalities were recorded during 2017 or since Capco’s inception. There was a total of 6 RIDDOR incidents reported across the Group during 2017, comprising 1 RIDDOR on the Covent Garden estate and 5 RIDDOR incidents recorded involving employees of contractor employees on development projects.

We will continue to work with our supply chain to maintain healthy and safe construction projects as well continuing to provide high standards of health & safety across all of our property activities.
