Building Safety Services Coventry
JCH Safety, Nuneaton is fully versed in the health and safety duties and responsibilities in the construction industry. Working throughout Coventry & Warwickshire, one of our fully trained consultants will provide you with the correct information and advice around your safety needs and can help you meet the current UK regulations applicable to building projects and the safety management which they require.
Building projects come with all manner 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 accordingly. Whether it be the risk of falling from height, the possible exposure to asbestos or the risks from chemicals, the hazards must be appropriately considered, risk assessed, and controlled.
We are on hand to assist your business to have practical systems and correct procedures in place. These will help to prevent your organisation suffering the consequences of poor health and safety practices, 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.
From helping you to determine that you have the right safety practices in place, to conducting a full building project audit, JCH Safety can assist with all aspects of occupational health and safety relevant to building, maintenance and refurbishment works.
Regardless of the type of building project your business might undertake, it’s vital to ensure you have adequate health and safety protocols in place. The UK governing body for Health & Safety, the HSE, has a range of information on construction safety and the correct management procedures. These are a great source for information. See our Resources page for more details.
With building, construction and renovation works, the client has considerable health and safety responsibilities. It is imperative that regardless of whether you are the client, the contractor or part of the design team, you understand your duties. This is particularly important now with the introduction of the updated Construction (Design and Management) Regulations, 2015.
Do you provide your contractors with adequate pre-contract information?
Under the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations, 2015 (CDM), companies have a number of duties to perform to ensure they are following all UK regulations when planning and undertaking building and refurbishment works. These regulations cover both Public Health and Safety Services as well as those in the private sector. More information and guidance can be found here.
JCH Safety can help you overcome any issues with non-compliance by becoming the eyes and ears for your business, representing you at meetings with CDM Coordinators, assisting you to appoint a CDM-C, and liaising with contractors, architects, designers and suppliers. We have an exceptional track record in helping several Educational Boards and Schools meet the high standards set by governing bodies for Educational Health & Safety.
The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) is the UK government agency responsible for the regulation and enforcement of workplace health, safety and welfare. If you are due a spot check by the HSE, JCH Safety will be on site to answer any questions they might have about the health and safety procedures you have in place.
