Building Projects & Safety Management

Why do we need this?

Educational Establishments throughout the UK are carrying out refurbishments to their buildings without full access to the correct health and safety information and the legal obligations that are in place which they must abide by.

A prime example of this is if you provide pre-construction packs to contractors at the tendering stage and site inductions for contractors? Many schools rely on using CHAS registered contractors but this does not ensure your compliance with your legal duties.

As well as ensuring your business is fully compliant to health and safety procedures you also need to ensure your site service offerings are also fully trained to the regulated standard. If your officers are not then this could leave you open to various compliants and also bigger health and safety issues down the road. JCH Safety can help ensure your staff and your building project is developed to a safe standard while ensuring your fully compliant with all regulations in place.
