The safety and well-being of our people is of paramount importance to us. We believe that every injury is preventable. Evolution is committed to providing a healthy and safe workplace whilst striving to achieve an injury free work environment for all personnel.

Evolution has a Safety and Health Policy which is a foundation of our safety management systems and processes.

Evolution has developed a comprehensive Health, Safety & Environmental (HSE) management system which our operations must comply with; each year, every site is subject to audit to ensure compliance with these HSE standards which can be viewed by clicking here.
