At PHD, we encourage all our staff to work towards our three core values; professional, honest and dependable, whilst also reinforcing our mantra ‘Safety by Choice, Not by Chance’. Our values motivate us to ensure people and safety remain paramount in all that we do.


I have been with PHD for nearly ten years and it is a great place to build both your career and self-confidence. I started out working on site to understand the practical element of the industry followed by the opportunity to work within the Compliance Team. Since then, through both self-motivation and training, I was appointed as the company HSEQ Director. I thoroughly enjoy what I do and believe PHD is one of the main reasons behind that.
