As a basic principle.

All our staff and contractors are expected to be fully trained for the task they are performing ensuring safe working practices.

Basic tasks such as handling and using equipment right through to ensuring equipment is PAT tested and visual checks are performed.

Items with short life spans such as harness, or PPE are replaced at regular intervals and check sheets are provided for all equipment.

Staff and contractors are provided with relevant PPE such as gloves, hard hats, work boots, uniforms, and goggles for the task in hand. Each staff member or contractor has access to a fully equipped first aid kit.

 

 Risk Assessment and Method Statements:

For any task we perform, we are able to provide a set of written risk assessments and method statements if required, signed by both the client and our staff before work begins.
