Safety, health, environment and quality (SHEQ)

Safety always

As one of the foremost access and engineering companies in Hong Kong, we strive to be at the forefront of safety, health, environment and quality (SHEQ).

Hargreaves Industrial Services (HK) and Access Services (HK) have successfully attained many SHEQ standards, such as OHSAS 18001 and the British Safety Council 5-star award. Our own Behavioural Safety Program is a powerful tool that operatives and staff deploy to enhance staff engagement and create even safer working environments.



Our strict code of conduct for good working practice is built on 'Key Safe Behaviours' which we expect and demand our operatives to follow at all times.


Protect others with barriers, warning signs, fans etc.

Safe system of work

Work to the Risk Assessment and Method Statement (RAMs), work safely and to SG4:15


Keep your work area tidy, with no trip hazards

Personal protective equipment (PPE)

Wear full PPE — including helmet, safety boots, Hi-Vis clothing, gloves (and harness if trained)


Erect ties progressively — e.g. on the base lift, every other lift & top lift and erect a neat and safe scaffold (TG20:13)
