EDP recently attended the National Grid Safety, Health and Environment (SHE) Forum and Property Awards where it received the SHE Leadership Award in recognition of its continued key role in the National Grid contractor supply chain, ensuring construction ‘gold standards’ are being met on all projects.

EDP has worked with National Grid for more than 15 years, delivering UK-wide construction safety services (site inspection and CDMA), covering commercial property and critical infrastructure, including high-risk demolition projects and ground remediation.

Key aspects of our service to National Grid include collaborative partnership between the client, the supply chain and EDP; early engagement on each project to support in reviewing and managing risks and availability to discuss changes in design; continual improvement, for example, bi-monthly trend analysis meeting with proposals for targeted health and safety campaigns; seminars for supply chain and client on key topics; and a reactive service – two-hour response to COVID lockdown at critical infrastructure sites.
