Dismantling and Decommissioning jobs can be incredibly hazardous. This is more so when the site was involved in the storage or production of harmful materials. Even small traces of these substances can cause a lot of harm to the environment and people. – Here at Thompsons, we put in place all the necessary prevention and mitigation measures to ensure that our work has the least environmental harm and impact as possible.


All of our work is done in accordance with our Health, Safety, Quality and Environmental Management Systems, which are accredited to ISO 9001, 14001, 45001 and 50001 standards.
