Health & Safety

 

Health & Safety has been at the forefront of B&W Builders & Decorators Ltd's thinking and management for many, many years and continues to evolve. For the past 7 years our company has operated a bespoke Health & Safety Management System in line with OHSAS 18001. We retain Setter & Associates as our external Health & Safety advisors and benefit from a full backup and resource team when required.

All our managers are SMSTS certificated (Site Managers Safety Training Scheme) our supervisors are SSSTS certificated (Site Supervisors Safety Training Scheme) and our workforce hold the required Health & Safety training certifications.

We have 12 fully trained first aiders amongst the workforce and management.

All of our workforce are UKATA Asbestos Awareness Trained. We carry out regular sampling and testing as a matter of course on all our sites by BSure Trained operatives prior to any work taking place.

B&W Builders & Decorators Ltd hold monthly Health & Safety meetings with site safety representatives and middle and upper management, this provides a rolling program of improvement and education.

All staff are CRB checked.

Through our training matrix there is continual training in regards to Health & Safety and this encompasses monthly tool box talks and instruction to the workforce.

Through Constructions Skills and the CITB we often attend their regular seminars on various topics spanning all areas of Health & Safety and the environment and have also recently attended several Constructing Excellence Wales events which have been held in North Wales. This proves useful as it keep the company up to date with ever changing legislation and enables this information to be passed onto the workforce through memos, posters and tool box talks.

Auditing of company processes and procedures is carried out both internally and externally to ensure compliance. B&W Builders & Decorators Ltd are happy to work with our training providers and the HSE to continually improve and evolve our Health & Safety systems in line with the most current regulations. We are SAFEContractor, Constructionline and CHAS approved.
