The Safety Business



Construction industry health and safety support services

We’ve designed a number of services to specifically support the construction industry.

Health and safety regulations are particularly stringent in this sector of course, and we can help you make sure you are compliant in every aspect of what you do.

To make sure you get the best value from our service, we’ll need to be part of your project team. This level of involvement ensures your systems and procedures are followed and implemented, so you can be confident you are fully compliant. And of course make sure you build confidence with your clients and prospects.

 

Third Party Accreditation Assistance and Support

Accreditation to a member of SSIP such as CHAS, SafeContractor etc are widely used to indicate that sub-contractors meet a standard of safety on site and is a must if you are a serious player in the construction industry.

Health and safety best practice reassures existing and prospective clients and addresses their responsibilities too.

We’ll help you make sure your application is successful by first explaining the Assessment process to you, then we’ll help you present your application and supporting documentation in a format which maximises your chances of acceptance.

Client Compliance Audits for CDM building regulations

We can review your current procedures, comment, and recommend how you implement your duties under the CDM building regulations as part of your risk management strategy.

Site Waste Management Plan

A Site Waste Management Plan (SWMP) should be integral to construction industry health and safety processes.

To help you do that, we’ll devise a Site Waste Management Plan strategy that clearly identifies your aims and objectives for waste minimisation. And we’ll provide guidance on how you can achieve them.

We do this by attending your relevant project meetings and monitoring your Site Waste Management Plan throughout construction via the site inspection process.

Competent Client Advisor Role

We have considerable experience in advising and helping clients fulfil their CDM and health and safety responsibilities. Did you know that, under the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations, you need to appoint what’s known as a Competent Person? That’s someone who is fully versed in current health and safety regulations. We can take on that role for you. Take a look at our Competent Person service. (Please link to that page)
