Health and Safety
One of the most important aspects of groundworks is Health and Safety. Health and Safety is of paramount importance to us at Bottom Groundworks, as it is an integral part of our ethos and therefore we have allocated resources to support the objectives of this policy.
Safety is one of our most important aspects
We work closely with our operatives to make sure they are aware of new industry standards, enabling them to work safely and confidently on site.
It is our policy to provide and maintain a safe and healthy workplace for all our employees, customers, visitors, contractors, and others who may be affected by our activity.
We operate a tight health and safety policy including:
Full PPE is supplied and worn at all relevant times
Checks for existing underground services
Time planning to avoid construction during busy periods
British Standards Equipment
Safety barriers around excavations
Checks on all excavations before works commence
We ensure that each operative is given the opportunity to achieve new qualifications through CITB/CISRS training.
Our team carry out a full survey before starting planning or excavations to find workarounds for any potential problems like underground services.
We ensure that our groundworks teams are fully conversant with the latest health and safety legislation so that good practice and compliance can be attended to throughout the build.
We acknowledge the requirements of the Construction Industry Regulations.
We understand the legal obligations under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974. No matter what your requirements for groundworks and landscaping, make sure health and safety plays a big role: Contact us today to speak to one of our experienced team to arrange a full survey and quotation.
