Health & Safety

Health, Safety, The Environment And A Quality Service

Health and Safety is paramount in everything we do, and this emphasis is reflected in our excellent safety record and constant effort to improve.

Our approach to Health and Safety is based on the idea of personal commitment and individual empowerment. We believe everyone has a right to return home safely every day, and a duty to take care of themselves and those around them.

Our excellent Health & Safety record is achieved through:

  • Professional advice – in addition to our own in-house personnel, we ensure the highest of standard by utilising the services of external professional safety advisors.
  • Supervision – we employ a good ratio of supervisors to manage the onsite workforce teams; all our supervisors are trained to SSSTS equivalent and hold the supervisor cards; our Concrete Pump personnel are CPCS card holders.
  • Risk and method statements – by using job specific method statements and regular on-site toolbox talks we ensure that health and safety remain paramount at all times.
  • PPE – all our personnel are provided with high-quality PPE to enable them to carry out their work safely. With safety critical equipment, controlled records are maintained for the purpose of inspection, maintenance and replacement.
