We speak to a great deal of construction and contracting clients who aren't getting the support which they need. 

Not all safety consultants are experienced and competent in construction, we are.

Managing safety in construction and contracting is never easy.  Unlike a factory or workshop the situation is under constant change and the pressure to complete projects gets amplified by a string of external influences from conflicting trades to site conditions.

You need a partner who you can rely on with the skills, capability and flexibility to make sure you stay on track, on time and on budget.  We work for hundreds of businesses across the UK and retain over 94% of our clients long term - call us or request a call back to find out what we can do to help 01453 800100 or take a look at our staff page.

Health and safety support including policies and RAMS
We will create all of the safety documentation you need from your safety policy through to writing the site specific RAMS which are required.  We'll also train and mentor your staff so they are comfortable in using them.
SSIP Contractor Approval Schemes CHAS
We assist hundreds of clients with SSIP applications for SMAS, CHAS, EXOR, Constructionline, SafeContractor and all other SSIP approvals including Achilles. We can work on a fixed fee basis and will happily guarantee the acceptance of our systems and paperwork under PAS91. Whether you have all the documents you need but are too busy or if you need to start from scratch we're here to help and can quickly get you approved and working (our record is less than 2 days!).
Toolbox talk sessions
Toolbox talks are becoming more important as companies seek to involve workers and encourage them to take steps to look after their own safety.  By its nature construction requires your staff to often wok in small teams and supervision can be an issue.  Using these short training sessions you can ensure that staff are safe when you can't be there to monitor them at the same time as discharging your duty to provide information, and instruction. Check on our Blog for more details on how to get the most out of your toolbox talks.
Site audits and reports
Plan Do Check Act. Without this process you are waiting for the next incident or accident to occur. Regular site audits, particularly when they are performed by an expert external to the organisation, really do help drive the message through to staff at site.

We carry out a range of audits from specifics for demolition to general audits for smaller teams linked to toolbox talks on key issues, so whether you operate on a large site under the scrutiny of a major contractor or you just want to drive compliance forward we can help.

Construction Phase Safety Plans under CDM 2015
The changes to the CDM 2015 Regulations means that even small projects lasting hours can still be in scope to the regulations and require safety documentation to be completed. This doesn't have to be onerous and HSE expect something appropriate and suitable rather than enormous but the question remains 'how much is enough?' We can develop the right documents to keep you compliant without swamping you in paper.
Occupational health
Occupational health in construction is now key to avoiding FFI fines from HSE and maintaining safety compliance. We've been involved since the early stages as occupational health has always been something which we worked in from noise and vibration to dust and chemical exposures. We don't just know the Regs, we have 20 years of experience in working on monitoring and solutions to exposure, if you have questions, we have the answers.
