Construction Safety Advice including Site Based Work & Construction Site Pack

Virtually everyone involved in a construction project has legal duties under CDM 2015.

As a contractor (individual or business) in charge of carrying out construction work (eg building, altering, maintaining or demolishing) – your main duty is to plan, manage and monitor the work under your control in a way that ensures the health and safety of anyone it might affect (including members of the public).

As a worker who actually carries out the work involved in building, altering, maintaining or demolishing buildings or structures, your duties include cooperating with your employer and other dutyholders and reporting anything you see that might endanger the health and safety of yourself or others.

We can assist you in the development and documentation of a site based safety pack which will include:

  • A construction based health and safety policy to include a statement of intent, organisation and arrangements section and guidance documents to cover all your health and safety risk areas and statutory requirements;
  • Risk assessment and method statement (RAMS) for a typical site which can then be adapted for each project as required;
  • Provide standardised forms for supervisor / management completion and documentation to evidence compliance to the risk assessment and site based health and safety policy control measures. This would include, for example, ladder and steps registers and inspection forms, site safety inspection check-lists, tool-box-talks, induction records etc;
  • Carry out an initial site visit to an active project to confirm the accuracy of the documentation and make amendments as required to any documentation, and then provide ongoing site visits to ensure general compliance.

We also offer SMSTS training courses through our construction partner.
