The safety and wellbeing of our people and those we work with has always been our priority. AtkinsRéalis Ireland following the latest government guidance, we’ve implemented measures to ensure our offices in the Ireland, as well as project sites that are under our control, are COVID-19 Secure. AtkinsRéalis Ireland have set out a Business Response Plan for COVID-19 and risk asssements.

In every office location, we’ve undertaken a detailed office risk assessment which is published and available to our people via our company intranet. Before anyone is permitted to enter any of our workplaces, they must first complete a workplace induction (tailored to each location) and a personal risk assessment which must receive business approval.

Our control measures are tailored to suit each workplace to ensure that we identify, eliminate and manage the risk of our offices becoming a mode of transmission.

In addition to these processes and operational procedures, we’re also focused on the mental wellbeing of our employees, ensuring they feel confident to work safely and empowered to raise any concerns which may affect their mental or physical health.

Our risk assessment processes have been carefully managed and audited by our Director of Health & Safety and every one of our offices has been subject to a Health & Safety audit by an expert safety professional.

If you have any queries in relation to COVID-19 in relation to AtkinsRéalis Ireland, please contact us.

Tackling gender inequality and removing barriers for women to succeed in their careers is something that we as a business take seriously – it’s an ongoing focus across the engineering industry and a big part of AtkinsRéalis’ global ED&I programme to make sure that everyone is included and made to feel they belong.

In the past year, we’ve continued the work we started to address the female underrepresentation across our industry and our workforce. We’re doing more than ever to entice the next generation to choose a career in STEM related subjects, our processes and procedures are becoming more robust and flexible, our improved data capture is providing us with business intelligence on diverse characteristics across areas such as recruitment, promotion, and leavers, and we’re offering a growing number of avenues for development and progression.

Engineering a better future for our planet and its people requires a team with exceptional talent and the ability to recognise and reflect the needs of the society they serve, and we’re confident that the foundations we’re laying down now will accelerate progression in the long term and bring sustainable change.
