Caring for our people and our planet

Our HSQE vision centres around numerous targets and campaigns, including the drive to become net-zero by 2023. Our Work Safe, Home Safe culture continues to govern the adoption of safe working practices and promote correct working behaviours, with our health and safety management system certified to ISO45001 standards.


“As a global business of scale, social responsibility and delivering true social value that drives a lasting legacy for both the Group and our stakeholders is a major focus. Our purpose is to make a positive difference to people’s lives, safeguarding and caring for our clients, candidates, contractors, colleagues, supply chain, communities and the environment. We intervene if situations or the behaviours of others are unsafe, and promote our initiative Work Safe, Home Safe across the business.”

Protecting our people, our Work Safe, Home Safe culture.

Health, safety, and respect for the environment are integral parts of Morson’s fundamental performance.

Our behavioural safety initiative, Work Safe Home Safe, was developed to enable our entire workforce to understand the need for personal cultural change and how to embed safe working in the workplace. Ingraining safety behaviours into our day to day working whilst continuing to develop company policies and processes provides a balanced approach that may be tailored to the specifics of each workplace and client.

Close Call App

Our close call app simplifies and streamlines the reporting of hazards and risks into a simple app, which our workers can use on the go to report incidents straight to our HSQE team. Our app receives around 2,000 close calls per year demonstrating continued buy-in across our operations, with each close call enabling us to deliver proactive actions.

Protecting our planet.

Our environmental focus is driven by a moral compass to do the right thing and a desire to be the best. We strive to minimise our environmental impact through positive and sustainable actions that drive measurable improvement, and we continue rethinking operational practices to reduce our carbon footprint aiming to become net-zero by 2023. 

Supply Chain Sustainability School 

Morson has become a partner of the Supply Chain Sustainability School, allowing the company to collaborate to improve efficiency and success across the supply chain. We attained their Gold Award accreditation in October 2017 demonstrating greater levels of sustainability competence and engagement.


Almost three-quarters of our emissions are derived from our fleet and we continue to monitor the automotive market as manufacturers work to develop new technology. Our Canning Town branch fleet is fully electric and our business has adopted Shell’s fuel card scheme, Destination: Carbon Neutral. We also ensured our entire fleet became ULEZ (Ultra Low Emissions Zone) compliant with an ongoing vehicle renewals programme.
