Safety for all
Prior to the commencement of any works, a project-specific Health and Safety Plan is prepared. The plan highlights all hazards associated with the works, and advises on control measures to reduce the associated risks, incorporating risk assessments, method statements and COSHH assessment. We also employ an external Health & Safety Advisor who carries out monthly site audits, prepares monthly site reports and ensures our sites are run with H&S as priority.
