All of our team have attended a training event which encompasses the Working at Height Regs 2005. This is one of several areas we run training every 3 years as a refresher.  The majority of our Working at Height is carried out from MobileTowers, cherry pickers or scaffolds.

Our team and regular sub contractors have worked in several areas where Health & Safety is a key issue, this may range from secure units where there is a risk of personal harm, to hospitals where cleanliness is a key issue to ensure infection control.

Health & Safety

 

All of our Site operatives  have had regular certificated asbestos training and Working with Asbestos / Facefit Certification.

Working with asbestos is planned and the right controls are in place (ie we have the right equipment);

With refurbishment contracts we are generally issued with an Asbestos Register for the site this will tell us if the materials are asbestos cement, textured coatings and others which do not need a licence. In the event an employee discovers potential asbestos a Manager will be called and works will stop until the material can be tested / identified.

CDM Regs 2015










April 2015 saw some major changes for the small builder. Every construction project (whether refurbishment, internal alterations, minor works) are required to have a Construction Phase Health & Safety Plan, this can be as little as an A4 sheet of paper as long as it covers all the main points ie welfare, risks, people on site etc. If you are having building work done, then you as the client are responsible for asking your builder for a Construction Phase Health & Safety plan BEFORE work commences.
