HEALTH AND SAFETY Home / Health And Safety
Our Health and Safety Policy is a written statement outlining our legal duties under the Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974. It sets out how health and safety issues are managed and is a commitment to planning and managing health and safety at work. It is our key to achieving an acceptable working environment and preventing accidents and instances of work-related ill health. Our Health and Safety Policy is updated annually.

Risk and Method Statements
Managing health and safety is little different from managing any other aspect of our business.
Risk assessment helps to protect our workers the business, clients and the public as well as comply with the law. It helps us focus on the risks that really matter - the ones with the potential to cause real harm.
All of our section leaders are trained in carrying out risk assessments and we make sure that we generate a site specific risk and method statement for every job that we attend.
Tool Box Talks
Tool box talks are carried out on every site to ensure that our operatives can work as safely and efficiently as possible ensuring site specific risks are thoroughly communicated on every contract.
Health and Safety Audits
As well as conducting our own Health & Safety audits we also use external independent consultants to assist and audit our company at regular intervals. Currently Stallard Kane are our self-appointed external health and safety consultant.
Training is one of our top priorities for all our staff on site and in the office to enable them to be the best that they can be. All of our service engineers, fitters and mates are CSCS registered as well as being qualified in PASMA, IPAF and Manual Handling as standard with the option to go on to carry out vocational training. Our management are trained and qualified to IOSH standards and our section leaders / project managers have attended risk assessment courses and Method statement writing as well as on site experience with the installers so they know how the job is and should be done.
