Health & Safety

At Specialist Cutting Services, we are of the philosophy that Health & Safety is for everyone on site, not only for our own sake but also others around us in and at the workplace.

At Specialist Cutting Services, we ensure that the safety of the workforce and others in the working environment is of paramount importance and feel in addition to the regular tool box talks undertaken by the supervisors, we ensure that regular site visits are undertaken by our Health & Safety manager and senior management team. This is to both reinforce and ensure that the policies and level of safety we aim for at Specialist Cutting Services are adhered to and are filtered through to all the workforce.

We always striving to keep up to date with new policies procedures and regularly hold meetings with our Health & Safety manager to look at areas where we think we can improve or simply add to the wellbeing and safety of the workforce.

We feel one of our key strengths is the fact that “ALL” Specialist Cutting Services Management team have had their time on site and this vast depth of knowledge and experience is key to us being able to offer a variety of solutions to solve the problem and in turn this offers the safer and more methodical approach to more challenging tasks!

We insist on providing written method statements and risk assessments before work commences. This is so the client can understand and be made fully aware of the potential risks involved and gain a firm understanding of the method of operation and the ways in which these risks will be reduced. All operatives will read and sign the method statement and a copy will be sent for site reference, before work starts.

All Specialist Cutting Services operatives hold the current CSCS cards and the company has achieved the CSCS platinum award for this. All experienced workers have achieved, as a minimum, the level 2 NVQ in drilling and sawing, and all of the trainees are on the scheme and are working toward the same qualification. Further to this, all operatives undergo regular in house training.

In addition to the standard drilling & sawing qualifications we also have operatives that have achieved the following training awards:
  • Confined Space
  • Asbestos Awareness
  • PASMA
  • MEWP / Cherry Pickers
  • Skid Steer Loaders
  • BROKK demolition plant
  • PTS

To underline the importance of health and safety and to implement current and new legislation, our Supervisors give regular tool box talks which are all written by our IOSH & NEBOSH qualified H&S Manager’s along with input from everyone on the firm.
