Life at Cunningham Contracts - Meet our EHS Advisor, Maria Pires



To coincide with Construction Safety Week, we are shining a spotlight on our Environment, Health and Safety Advisor Maria Pires.


Construction Safety Week celebrates best practice to reinforce and promote the importance of safety, health and overall well-being at work and in life.


Maria started her career at Cunningham Contracts Group earlier this year, attracted by the growth of the business and the opportunities available for progression.


Maria has a wealth of industry-led qualifications and her love of learning has helped her to implement the most practical and safe processes to ensure a safe working environment for all our colleagues.


Maria holds two Nebosh National Certificates in Occupational Health and Safety and Construction Health and Safety alongside Nebosh’s Introduction to Incident Investigation.


In addition to the Foundation Certificate in Environmental Management, Maria is a certified lead implementer for Integrated Management Systems (ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015 & ISO 45001:2018), alongside IMS Internal Auditing: Process Risk and Performance Based Approach (ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015 and ISO 45001:2018).


“These qualifications”, Maria says, “help me underpin my strategic approach when faced with challenges requiring in-depth knowledge and experience. However, there’s no challenge too great as I thrive on finding a solution that works for everyone”.


Maria is a true team player who interacts with her colleagues, customers and partners to build collective engagement every step of the way and deliver the best results.
