At Jones, we recognise the growing awareness around the demand for responsible business behaviour with issues relating to sustainability, ethics and respect for all of our stakeholders. We are extremely passionate about culture, diversity and inclusiveness in the workplace and recognise the impacts that they have on both their environment and the society in which they operate.
We are proud to announce that at the 28th Annual National Irish Safety Organisation / Northern Ireland Safety Group (NISO/NISG) Safety Awards held on Friday the 11th of October, Jones Engineering won both the Silver Award and the Exceptional High Achiever Award for achieving a distinction or a high achiever award in each of the last ten years.

To achieve these awards we demonstrated the existence of a proactive health and safety management system with evidence of strong management leadership, of continual improvement, health and safety management system reviews and superior performance by company and subcontractor employees.
We have long held safety as our number one value. Priorities can change, values do not. We continually drive, promote and maintain the physical, mental and social wellbeing of all employees and everyone is empowered through our pro-active safety culture. For our team safety is not just a standard, it’s a frame of mind. We would like to thank all our staff and subcontractors who continually carry out work on behalf of Jones Engineering in a safe manner in order to achieve and maintain our high safety standards.
