Health & Safety

Scaffolding is one of the most high-risk jobs in the construction sector, which is why at Brand’s Health & Safety is always our first priority.

At the beginning of any new build or project we provide a full Health & Safety Package to the contractor which includes a detailed Method Statement and Risk assessment, a full Health and Safety Policy statement, Public and Liability Insurance details, a training matrix and qualifications details of all our operatives and supervisors.

We also ensure that all of our employees are fully outfitted with the correct PPE, harnesses and tools, in order to comply with all regulations of the site and to promote their own safety. Once a scaffold is erected a Handover Certificate is supplied on every installation following an initial safety inspection from one of our supervisors and the appointed site manager. We can also provide a weekly inspection service of the scaffold, operate using the scaff-tag system and sign off the on site scaffolding register.

Also adding to this, we work closely with an external health and safety company, Bill Rogerson Safety Services Ltd, who carry out regular on-site inspections of our erected scaffolds, SG4 Scaffold Update training, and when necessary, toolbox talks. Furthermore our company is registered with SMAS, a national safety scheme recognised by SSIP.
