Health & Safety
At Sovereign Scaffolding SW Ltd we recognise the importance of embracing safe working practices to ensure the wellbeing of our employees, other contractors and members of the public. In achieving this we acknowledged and acquired the assistance of a professional H&S organisation. We have been working with Greenlight Safety Consultancy Ltd for the past four years and with their assistance we have developed a specific management system which conforms to the HSG65 model.
Through training and communication, our operatives have assisted in the development of our management system which has automatically simplified the understanding and appreciation of the important roles played by everyone within the company. Due to this, the implementation of our policies and procedures were welcomed, as well as structured feedback being regularly received. Our systems are robustly measured/reviewed to ensure our standards are continually maintained and, where necessary, improved upon.
As well as an annual audit conducted by Greenlight Safety Consultancy Ltd we also complete external assessments through SMAS in order to assist us in verifying our competence as an organisation.
Our operatives also conduct periodic training, some of which include:
- SG4/10 – Preventing falls in scaffolding
- TG20/08 – Technical guidance
- Risk Assessment
- Manual Handling
- Emergency First Aid at Work
- Asbestos Awareness
- Training for Asbestos works that does not require a licence (Non-licence)
- Site Supervisor Safety Training
- IOSH Managing Safely
- Streetworks training.
