Building Safety Services Coventry

JCH Safety can help you meet the current UK regulations applicable to building projects and the safety management which they require. Building projects come with all types of issues and hazards which, if not addressed correctly, can cause injury or even death to your employees. Construction activities are incredibly hazardous and it is vital that these risks are managed. The courts do not look kindly on those who do not manage construction risks properly. Whether it be the risk of falling from height, the possible exposure to asbestos or the risks from chemicals the hazards must be appropriately thought out, risk assessed and controlled.

We are on hand to assist your business to have practical systems and procedures in place. These will help to prevent your organisation suffering from the consequences of poor health and safety including serious injury to your team, prosecution and negative media publicity. Keep your team, your property and your reputation safe by managing safety properly from the outset of a project.

Regardless of the type of building project your business might be undertaking, it’s vital to ensure you have adequate safety advice in place. The UK governing body for Health & Safety, the HSE, has a range of information on Construction Safety & the correct management procedures. These are a great source for information.

Remember with building, construction and renovation works the client has considerable health and safety duties. Ensure that whether you are the client, the contractor or part of the design team that you understand your duties. This is particularly important now with the introduction of the updated Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015

Public Health & Safety Services

Often businesses and public sector organisations undertake building and refurbishment works in order to facilitate expansion. Either you are expecting a larger intake of students, or the demand for your products/services has increased and you need to improve your facilities to handle the demand. As a result you are probably already extremely busy and that is prior to commencing the property alterations.

In this environment it is particularly important to ensure that you have access to competent advice to make sure that you do everything that is expected of you. This is particularly relevant if you do not have much experience in managing building projects. Are you aware that you have to provide designers and contractors with pre-construction information? Do you really know the hazards that your existing property has? Do you have up to date information about access to your roof or information about asbestos and ground conditions? These are all areas which may need to be considered prior to commencing building works.
