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
- MEWP / Cherry Pickers
- Skid Steer Loaders
- BROKK demolition plant
- Thames Water Passport
- First Aid
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.
