We fully comply with all our responsibilities under relevant legislation and the Construction Design and Management (CDM) regulations. Our health and safety systems and standards have been assessed and approved by the Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme (CHAS), trusted by public and private organisations throughout the UK.
SO WHAT DOES THAT MEAN IN PRACTICE?
Every site is unique. Before the start of each project we prepare a health and safety plan to identify and manage risks, for example site access and boundaries, vehicle turning, the presence of overhead or underground services, material delivery and storage. We also prepare a method statement setting out how each project will be constructed.
All our employees are provided with the appropriate protective equipment and training to ensure that all material and machinery can be handled and operated safely. Site inductions and refresher training is mandatory.
We employ an external safety advisor to direct and audit our health and safety systems to ensure that the correct procedures are being followed.
For additional reassurance, all our staff have been vetted with an enhanced DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) check.
